At sunrise my heart breaks

autumn

My love! I cry out.
Dread fills my waking hours.
My love! I call out.
You fill my dreams.

My nights are treasures.
In my dreams I touch you.
You kiss me, you touch me.
At sunrise my heart breaks.

Gone. Lost forever.
Once I held on to you.
You kept pulling away.
I let go. You vanished.

A day without you.
Has time stopped?
A knife stabs my heart.
Each second a piercing.

Is today the next day?
Where are you my love?
I wait, you never came.
Tomorrow holds emptiness.

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
