Where once we knew


Where once we knew.
Each others thoughts
Finished a sentance.
There were no walls.

Best friends forever.
Now, not so sure.
We snap at each other.
Once, we did not.

Anger seem to rule.
Words come out wrong.
Hurting each other.
To mend never easy.

Your mind elsewhere.
You answer on auto pilot.
Saying the right thing.
Yet, never really here.

With others it’s different.
Your laughter contagious.
With topics of interest.
You are there, present.

When I talk to you,
you don’t look at me.
You hear. You reply.
In an absentminded way.

When did we stop talking?
Or thoughts straying away.
Feeling lost and lonely.
The gap, a chasm now.

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
