Blood everywhere

Suddenly the beast leaps out of my man. 
I see molars, I see deep down inside 
his mouth. I see his tongue. 
His jaws hang loose. 
He curses me. 
His eyes double in size,
they have no lids.  
I don't know the wolf in the bed. 
No, I will not argue with it.
I will not engage with madness. 
My darling is buried alive inside 
this howling thing. 
My gentle music lover cannot get out, 
cannot give me his hand. 
So I will bite down on my tongue 
before it can spit, 
my teeth will drop down
to form a cage around my tongue,
I will bite down hard until
my blood is everywhere.
