For some reason
you are upset with me
for a couple of days

Although I don't know the reason
I guess it right
You haven't spelled it out
I too haven't asked you
We have taken opposite positions

Silence is chatting between us
Maybe the conversation is called
the battle of nerves

without arms
this is the most difficult battle

On earth it is the best person
who wins this battle again and again
It is the one who ends this silent battle
is ever defeated

You want to be the winner
Me too don't want to be the loser

So the distance between us is widening

(Original Assamese poem titled "Antardarshan")
