Why is everyone so uptight. First of all it applies to people in live in relationships. She is claiming to not getting enough attention and wanting a set her hidden self free. She is trying to say she is more than just the maid taking care of the home! She wants more passion and if she can't have it with him she will go fine it elsewhere. Story of someone feeling trapped in a deadend relationship.
This is my understanding, you get to a certain point in your life and this applies to women mainly at home that they lose their identity. You feel you life is just a maid etc to your family. 'A domesticated girl, that's all you ask of me. ' Devoting Monday to Friday etc and feeling like you treated no better than an abused coffee machine in an office'…Inside you feel you need to escape and become something different and wild (wolf) she want to find the freedom and sexuality that she know she had and wants to find herself again but the family restraints hold her back. So in the closet lies her she wolf and she is asking to be let out so that she can breathe. When you are trapped in the day to day hum drum of life… sometimes you cannot breathe especially when you feel controlled. Of course I may be wrong!
