She shimmers and shines on borrowed light
its cold, she gives me warmth tonight
clammy fingers wrapped around shivering toes
a silent calm upon me grows

She hides I seek, I seek she hides
on cloudy waves she stealthily glides
chilly winds blow tunes through my hair
I hug myself under her gentle glare
Thoughts splutter and spout in my mind
memories I thought I wouldnt find
the grass is wet, my eyes still dry
cranky crickets creak nearby
I look at the moon, her pock - marked face
the craters - they add a gruesome grace
I gather myself and my moonlit thoughts
unspoken, unshared, undone, unthought.
Last night the moonlight was streaming onto my bed... maybe its the umblical cord I share with this cold piece of rock (my mother named me after looking at the moon from the bed she delivered me on) or its just the soppy romantic magic around it that draws me. Anyway, for reasons left unexplored, I look at the moon every night and submit to its breathtaking beauty...

    i cant believe tht m doin this again nd again..i guess u write just too well nd right now u r sleepin otherwise ur phone would hv been busy with my call..i don kno whether i'l hv th same thoughts later bout this..
    u r th only person except me whom i noticed wants to look at th moon every night..it doesn give me th romantic feel which it gives to u..but does give me th time of my life..lets me go of al my pains, nd makes me feel lost in its shimmers nd shine..
