One Night

What should I tell about that time

The time of fall

Leaves crunching under the feet

Moon spreading its light

Illuminating the night

And under the street light

Moths kept on the fight

They didn’t notice a lonely soul

All left alone

At this late at night

His head bowed down with shame

Like he was trying to

Cast away his pain

Or maybe hiding his face

Because he couldn’t be seen with tears

Full moon was there

Just staring and staring

Like every other night

It’s the witness of all the times

But will never speak

What it sees every time

Tales of wars and fight

All happening under its sight

This was no difference

Just a feeble boy

Walking alone with broken might

Holding his heart out

Crying without a voice

That’s what happens when

You are left with lost fight

To grieve upon the once dreamt dreams

Nothing changes but

Adding one more mark

On the starring moon

Just dulling its spark

And even the rain

Can’t wash it away.
