This post was done in collaboration with Jude from wordeologist. He enjoyed my six word stories and I really enjoyed his poetry especially the horror themed ones so we decided to put the two together! The italicized part is written by me and the rest is written by him. I hope you enjoy the post! Also be sure to check out his blog which has some amazing poetry on it by clicking here! He is an amazing writer and incredible person and his blog is definitely worth following!
Walking home alone, unknowingly being stalked.
Beth clings to the lingering scent of James perfume
Lost in blissful reminisces of the magical hour spent in his arms
Savoring the fading taste of him on her lips
That reckless euphoria blinds her to an insipid shadow that creeps along in her wake
But her gut instincts cannot ignore the insidious chill that tugs at her skin, ripping her from her walking fantasy
Slowly she becomes more aware
Something is different
She is no longer walking alone
She can feel something creeping behind her
Something silent but dangerous
She begins walking faster constantly looking over her shoulder
In her haste, she misses a step, trips and tumbles onto the asphalt
Quick as a flash something scurries from the shadows and pins her, facedown to the ground
Foul drool slurps allover her neck and squelches into her hair
But its grip loosens and she wriggles free, adrenaline springing her to her feet and to freedom
But the predator lives for the chase and she’s unwittingly herded into its lair
There is nowhere left to run.
Still omniscient night
Giving joy, hiding terror
Beware the shadows.
