ultimate sacrifice.

April 10, 2012

To bear his child,
without his knowing-
the ultimate sacrifice,

from a woman strong enough,
to carry the weight of two;
a woman smart enough,
to solely see it through,
for a man much afraid,
of his own shadow-
for a man given the choice,
would choose not to know.

I loved you like a man loves a woman he never touches, only writes to, keeps little photographs of. ― Charles Bukowski, Love is a Dog from Hell
