Just lies


Don’t lift me up
just to let me fall.
Don’t praise me
just to please me.

You feed my ego
until I start to believe.
But nothing is true
just lies, lies, lies.

I was soaring high.
Like an eagle, flying.
I ate up your praises.
My confidence grew.

Nothing is as it was.
Was there any truth,
under all the layers?
Will I find one truth?

Now, so much uncertainties.
It is eating at me.
It fester in my mind.
And spreads to my heart.

Trust is tarnished.
Hurt fills the heart.
Nothing makes sense.
Just lies, lies, lies.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. 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
