Fatal Attraction


By ImperfectlyPerfectPublished 4 months ago 1 min read
Top Story - June 2023

Drowning in the intensity of your stare, I almost forget to breathe. Like an

Insect being studied underneath a microscope , your laser focus is on me.

Squeamish because it's clear that you are predator and I am prey, I

Try to run but it's as if my feet have somehow been muddled . Heart

Racing damn near beating out of my chest, all I can think of is escaping.

Animosity seeps from your pores and I swear I can smell the stench of

Corpse on you. She got away though, or at least that's the story I've

Told myself. This was supposed to have been the highlight of our little

Island getaway. How were we to know that our tour guide led us astray?

One drink too many, roofied by the handsome stranger in the black suit,

Naivety got me here. My world fades to black , as you ensure I never leave.

    I found this to be deeply emotional, Tee. I love the rhythm of it too, the beat that seems to thrum through the piece, building with each line. Have you considered setting it to music at all?

    This was a scary read. It almost felt like I was being eaten alive under water. It's very descriptive, and your choice of words brought chills down my spine.
