Poetry by Juliette Sebock

tactility


she saw him.

walking the streets—

her heart

stopped from the periphery.


he's miles away.


she felt him.

his touch, his presence,

an overwhelming

guilt.


he's not there.


she heard him.

demanding,

careful words, attempts

to draw her in.


he gets no reply.


she saw him.

each night,

blurred dreams of things

that were.



She wakes up.
