My heart may hurt again


There is pain when you hurt me
Don’t hurt me please.
This cry from my heart is soft
The hurt in me is deep.

I have unlocked my heart.
I am vulnerable, exposed.
Knowing I can be hurt again.
Yet, it is a chance I take.

I desire to give love.
To let another receive.
I am afraid of being hurt.
I want to lock my heart.

To feel unwanted.
It’s a lonely place.
Being unloved is sad.
The soul dies slowly.

I need to love.
As much as to be loved.
Knowing my heart can break.
I still reach out for love!

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
