The day bright and warm.
Nothing could hide.
Darkness dispersed.
Nothing lurking.

The cold still clings.
Deep in the soul.
A void trapping fear.
A heartbeat stumbles.

Outside it’s still bright.
Eyes looking for shadows.
Only light it sees.
The mind sees darkness.

A heartbeat stops.
The soul feels the loss.
Tearing free, listening.
Hoping to hear a heartbeat.

Panic clutches the soul.
Something is amiss.
The heartbeat is silent.
The echos won’t cease.

The soul hears the echos.
It strains to hear a heartbeat.
Cries of the heart go unheard.
A war explodes in the mind.

Is that a heartbeat?.
Thoughts echo loudly.
The soul reaching out.
The void pulling it back.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
