The Voyeur

The voyeur

——

With sweat on my brow

and an aching display

of self-discipline

I pulled back my hand

stilled my feet

quieted my breath

and with eyes and ears trained

from years of looking into streams

waited

for this event

whatever it was

to happen

  1. Love the suspense!!
    Made me smile as it brought back a memory of going for a family walk – sitting and enjoying the lake. The next minute an angry fisherman was venting, apparently, my 6yr old son had sneaked up behind him and thrown a big stone into the water, frightening all the fish away ))cringes((
