She does nothing but talk

Fine, since I love to listen

She is loud, fussy, opinionated

And aggressive . . . but harmless

Whereas I am quiet, reserved

And diplomatic . . . but dangerous

She is so small I feel I could hold her in my palm

Those little women who think they're SO tough

Why do they love me so much?

Do I allow them to feel that safe?

That secure? That proud?

Sure wish they'd tell me since I hate to guess

They never say 'protect me', 'save me' or 'help me'

They just do what they want because I let them

I let them be themselves

I give them permission to be as they are

I allow them to suit themselves

 . . . ahhhhh, bliss . . .

      Thank you, sidney. I wasn't sure if freeverse was really going to fly in this venue, but so far the feedback has been so positive.
