Adreyo Sen



Pain, perhaps,
cannot travel oceans.

And my bones cannot break
in sympathy
when your leg
is crushed under stone.

The terror in your nerves
cannot travel so far.

But travel is not required
of the pain
and the terror
in your heart.

For is your heart not mine?

A tiny part of it
not so long ago?
