Let her out

Once... upon a dark time... at night, cold and lone.
My lover came home, though already with his beast tone.
He did not even eat the dinner, that I for him, made.
The beast for me rushed as if I was just a maid.

The animal always wants to speak just to the dark creature in me...
He says that I'm not good for him, he demands the twisted she.
By inflicting pain onto me and making me angry, it usually comes out.
This time... my beast wouldn't show. I was heading down a bad route.

Trying to beat the monster out of me, he did impatient.
I felt so weak, as if I was in a hospital... a dying patient.
"Why are you hiding?!" he said, referring to "her" was clear.
In tears I said, "I-I d-don't know why she doesn't want to appear."

"I suppose, she wants me to hurt you even further," he said with a smirk.
I was fearing the body of my beloved, he started going berserk.
Desperate for her, my body, he would punch, twist and pull.
Though no matter what, deep down in me was still the bull.

"Let... her... out... I said!" he angrily grunted out, annoyed.
"It is not my fault, perhaps tomorrow?" I said, to try and him avoid,
But it only got worse, he demanded her "I won't leave without my match".
The sweet me, begged for "her" to come out... from me, to detach.

No matter what, she wouldn't come. She just giggled and watched.
The plan of my beast saving me from him, I quickly botched.
And thus I cried, I was beaten into oblivion, he only wanted the girl feral.
He hurt me, until there was just his beast, nothing but she, all sterile.
