Goodnight Moon

Here’s my entry for the Daily Writing Prompt that Christine E. Ray is hosting on her blog Brave and the Reckless. The prompt for today was tittle of the children book by Margaret Wise Brown: ‘Goodnight Moon‘.


#GoodNight Moon


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 good-nights to the moon…
