Peeping Tom

I feel like

Boundaries

Are a weird thing.

How can someone

Honor something

They can’t see?

Personally, I had

A weird run in

With someone who

Didn’t understand

That I had them.

I was very open with them

But they did not

Treat me so human, so

I had to get the fuck out.

They honored the boundaries

Of just about everyone else, but–

For me it was

Months and months of silent stalking

Muted begging

I’m sure that the silence

To them

Was the respect

But if you’re standing

At the edge of

Someone’s glass house

Peeping silently for months

You are not

Respecting boundaries

More than someone

Who has the courage

To knock–

You’re actually just being a

Peeping Tom
