Swagata Ghosh, Poetry 2022 Longlist

The Moon And You

The moon stares at me

And I stare right back

Cos looking at you

Has given me the practice

To stare at pretty things for long

Which are out of my reach

But I do smile at the moon

As I do while looking at you

You shine in all your glory

Allowing me to gleam a bit

But mostly shunning me

I am alright with it though

In fact, I love it

I love adoring you from a distance

Waiting for the night o set in

Just to look at you

As the darkness sets on my dreams

Every single day.
