she had the habit
of cheerfully violating
insulating her from rebuke.
Her beauty was boundary-less too,
almond shaped green eyes
flaming red hair
a mouth afire-
pouty with the natural sex appeal
of a goddess
a mantle she wore easily
breath-taking to behold.
Few denied her
said no to her;
she most times
never having to ask
or experience want or need.
Instead she suffered from life's satisfactions
too easily won
floated through life un-moored
with an un-anchored ease
but her ability to give receded
because never exercised.
But I sensed her predicament
taking her face into my two hands
holding it tight.
I took her body
into my arms
and held it tight.
I took her mouth onto my mouth
and heard it whisper:
'I fell in love with you
because I sensed you could contain
all my boundaries
free me from
and the pain of relentless freedom.'
and wrapped my self around her
and felt her surrender

|Interesting: you have framed the female as the gushing force to be contained and the male as the containing discipline. In Kabbalah, we say the first aspect of duality is Chockmah, the male force, bursting forth without discipline. This force is contained by Binah, the female force of severity.
But of course, all things are mirrored at the various levels of existence.
