Good Night Moon – Ashwini Nawathe

He walks into my room stealthily
And caresses my shattered soul
Filling up all the dark crevasses
Once again, he makes me whole

Out of the night that covers me
He’s the only one who sees me bare
With all my scars and secrets exposed
His embrace is all that I wear

As the night wanes by
I put up my masks and act glad
But only he knows that I’m
A lonely soul heavily clad

As the world all around me
Readies to wake up soon
I sit silently by window
And whisper my goodnights to the moon…
