Beauty coaxed a beast
Out of the forest,
Giving it your name-
Shaping you a man,
Revealing her heart
A treasure won,
Including you in her life
As no other had
In painfully sweet pleasure.

Lies told from behind
Masks worn by another,
Old hurts took over:
The beast returned-
Acting in blind rage
You did as you pleased,
Taking what you will-
Dying, Beauty killed a beast
Who forgot he was a man.
