The Anglerfish Speaks, Cool Animals #1 (xpost from deeppapercuts)

I have become very tired.
I remember when I stopped eating,
when I smelled you in the dark and gave chase.
I remember the feeling of my small teeth, when I had teeth, on the skin of your belly,
the way the tiny dark blood vessels rose up and joined.
Did our hearts synchronize, or was mine overpowered?
After that first, arrhythmic rush I never left you, but now I feel something like regret.
There is a light in the water just ahead. I would like to see what it is.
