Anglerfish are the funniest creatures
it lures you in with its light
you become mesmerized and want to
bask in the glow
Dazzling the senses for the first few months
its mouth begins to open
and its invisible fangs
devours you unsuspectingly
you fall for it, it falls for you too.
within every chew and every bite
you’ll become trapped, blinded in surprising black
and feeling it
for what it really is
What is outside, for them
will always shine brighter
than what is interesting inside
Give it about two years for the ruse to spit you out
you didnt know.
then you fell for it.
and now you know.
