I love the way
your face flaps and ripples
when you lie

I know then
that you decieve me to protect me
because I am weak

but what makes me proud
is when your hand rains demons
red across my face

then you say sorry
that within me lies the fault
because I am weak

the look af dissapointment
when you found I was pregnant
changed something inside

what made me fear
was the birth of my beautiful girl
and when I first truly saw you

would I allow
your heated hand to bruise
the child I bore

no

what made,
forced me,
to kill
was you


 A real man
kisses his children goodnight
