Thresholds & Boundaries

Right here, there is a boundary.
It may not at first be so clear,
for the vestibule seems over the horizon to disappear.

When your feet course ‘cross this threshold,
I will bid you a courtesy warning.
To trample over it, carelessly, I will on the next offense bid you adieu.

Flirting repeatedly with this line will bring multiple yellow cards,
Careful there, for yellow cards can turn red quickly & without warning.

I’ve toiled to tear apart many fences & take down walls to know you (me, too).
Respect the thresholds or your knowledge of me will be merely a distant, foregone memory.

      1. Yes, me too. I also have trouble when I do say something, continuing to stick up for myself and not crumbling under the weight of the other persons rationalizations and emotions.

      2. YES, i can relate! i find the physical pressures a bit harder to stand up to… i used to stand up to peer pressure quite easily. somewhere i’ve lost some of my ability to be oppositional. interesting.

      3. Interesting! Maybe partly because of the deep empathy you feel? I find mine has only grown with age, and hiding it nearly impossible, making some situations more difficult. I think I am able to not participate in things I don’t wish to or that are hurtful to others. I do often end up taking responsibility for things that aren’t my wrongdoings in conversations when I feel the other person’s hurt (rationalizations, defensiveness) at what I’ve accused.

    1. Thank you, Sir for the well wishes. It’s been an interesting year of transformations… i seem to be having some difficulty w/ reading erotic posts right now… have had some not so great experiences lately in real life, so it’s reflecting elsewhere.
      I hope you are also well!
