Fish in the sea

My husband was a starfish
sticking to me, many armed
and feeding off me
as if I were a mollusk
sucking the insides
out of me...

I became a sharp toothed
albacore...
finding his weak spots
I attacked
battering him senseless
then chewed him up whole

Swimming...peacefully
gracefully in the sea
looking for my dream fish
I found him at last
the predator of the sea

He cut me to ribbons
with his sarap skin
then opened his fearsome jaws
tearing... biting

Me bleeding into nothingness
eaten by
my lover the shark
and the cycle continues...
