To Be Beleaguered Friend - Poem by Prayag Saikia

Maybe you'll sink into oblivion,
and a shroud of mist may engulf your isle.

But
who knows about the corals
and their Sabbath?

I remember the cross
on your bare chest.

You made me a promise,
and I believe in time's resurrection.

So, friend,
it's a bare envelope in your name
with mere silence.
