An epitaph to an unknown friend


O’ soul crossed over to the side
wake to see my tears pour
wake from the fifteen elements of darkness
to hear the thick of the crack in my throat
my heart has fallen into solemnity
as the photograph of your eyes
on the window keep popping at me

I knew you not
but the indeliblity of your words
have shaken me to feet
a boy in man’s anatomical shell
wherefore will darkness run from you,
and breathe be restored to thy nostrils,
that bones be recovered with flesh,
and lifeless soul quickened?

O’ souless soul
I know you won’t return
for me to know you
but in all transient of  armistice
darkness will never roll on forever
and with you your unknown friend
your indelible imprints are securely sealed
at the deep oasis of my soul
