My darling! My dear! I have a story to tell.
Guzzle your liquor and listen well.
I wore red tonight to provoke your temper.
Harlot! Whore! A beating before dinner.
I push the right buttons to elicit your rage
All while keeping the beast in me caged.
Secured all my bruises, and I'm ending your reign
Of mayhem and terror. NEVER. AGAIN.
I've played my part perfectly--submissive, meek
The monster in you feeds on the weak.
Sit back, my darling! Your supper is served,
Complete with hydrocodone laced hors d'oeuvres.
I've distressed my concern over your new pill addiction
To you mother and sister, I'm all tears and attrition.
"Unintentional" reveals of bruises displayed
Pull everyone into this tragic masquerade.
Listen, my darling! I have a big reveal!
I know your secrets--the lives that you steal.
But the day you stole her from me, your fate was sealed.
I entered your arena knowing your game
But the beatings and bruises don't compare to the pain
Of the loss you inflicted before you knew my name.
She was my light and my heart. She was leaving with me.
My golden haired lover with eyes like the sea.
You bloodied her eyes. You snuffed out her light.
You condemned me to darkness and sharpened my bite.
So, here we are now! My mask peeled away,
Revealing the beast I no longer hold sway.
My dear! You're stumbling! Are your limbs feeling heavy?
All the liquor and pills will make you unsteady.
You come at me swinging, I bide my time.
Nails down your face to make your rage climb.
Bloody my lip as I sink the knife in...
In your side, a meek try, a believable defense.
But this dance is nearly over, I've played my part well.
Your demise will have a clear "self-defense" sell.
I lock with your eyes at your approach
My primal rage building as you encroach
Your mistake realized too late, your hope turned remote
As I sink teeth into flesh and tear out your throat.
