STALKER (A poetry collaboration)

Hi everyone, so me and Pooja of lifesfinewhine , an incredibly successful blogger and beautiful soul, joined together and wrote some thrilling poetry. It has her famous six word stories and my not-so-famous haikus plus our combined verse. I hope you enjoy this as much as we enjoyed writing it…

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
Savouring 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 tags at her skin, ripping her from her walking fantasy

Slowly she becomes aware
Something is different
She is nolonger 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 no where to run

Still omniscient night
giving joy, hiding terror
Beware the shadows

.

So, Pooja did the Italics and I did the normal case but it feels like one piece right?(haha just biasing you, but you can judge for yourself).
Let me know what you think about this piece and if you’d like to join me in a collaboration, please email me on judekirya37@gmail.com

        What an interesting experience! Often I wonder the feelings that two authors have when writing a book together. Intertwined emotions!
