Poetry by Juliette Sebock

Swooning/Falling


When I fall to the ground,

I imagine I'm stumbling into your waiting arms,

in a world where you're there

and ready to catch me,

in a lifetime where

I never meet the ground.


As the world starts to blur,

I imagine your hand reaching out,

secure, steady, breaking my fall

with a grounding touch.


When the universe seems at its end,

I imagine we're lying side-by-side

as the ship sinks, grounds, collapses,

and the world implodes

in a moment's fall.
