Where are you my God?

The night is like a curtain
My tears remain hidden
In the stillness of night
Only God sees them

Awaiting sleep
I pour out my soul
In the silence of night
God is listening

Exhaustion; my body feels
Sleep comes yet restless
Into the land of dreams
My dreamscape in turmoil

The darkness is like a blanket
The quiet is screaming
Was that the hoot of an owl?
A white owl on the rooftop

The night has strange noises
Squeaks, rustles and howls
The wind rushes by, cold
A chill runs down my back

A light in the distance
I follow to a street corner
More lights beckon me
I am frantic, I follow

I arrive at the last light
Nothing but a dark void
My hand reach into my pocket
I clutch my rosary tightly

I remember my tears
My soul laid bare to God
Am I to take this last step
And fall into this dark void

I struggle, I am afraid
I feel lost and alone
Where are you my God?
Lead me out of here.

Church bells, my alarm
The dark is turning grey
My dreamscape is crumbling
Exhaustion returns, dawn is here.

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
