Here Kitty Kitty

Here Kitty Kitty

A Poem by MsJewel
"

not my usual sweet little love scribble....

"

 

 

________________

 

Gracefully he moves with the stealth of a cat

slipping unnoticed through the shadowy night

The cold chill of sweat runs down his neck

glistening under the street lamps light

 

His palms are moist with anticipation

as he waits for his innocent prey

His senses keenly aware of the present

for tonight he will have his play

 

As the moon up above reaches its peak

he sniffs the air appreciating the scent

of a whisper of jasmine floating in the dark

erasing any thoughts of repent

 

He sneers, leaning back…yes right on time

her pink scarf bright against the muted light

the click of her heels on the cold pavement

his sweet victim of the night

 

Her head held high in confidence

golden hair twisting in the chill of the wind

but her eyes dart quickly through the ominous streets

conflicting the message she sends

 

Fear…he can smell it…and jasmine perfume

as she quickens her lovely pace

But it’s too late…he is upon her now

terror lines her tender face

 

“Excuse me miss, do you have a light?”

he pulls a cigarette from behind his right ear

She catches her breath and steadies herself

but her eyes are still filled with fear

 

“No I don’t smoke” she softly replies

Oh my…such a pity

As her silhouette fades into the night

he purrs…here kitty, kitty

 

Maybe tonight wasn’t his night

but tomorrow when the moon is high

he will follow the scent of jasmine perfume

tomorrow…he won’t let her walk by….

I don't usually read poetry because I don't write it, but your drew me in with that fantastic title! I thought this was well written and you are very talented. You have a gentle style of psychological horror going on here and I would like to read a story of yours if you have one.

Well no I don't understand this one Julie. I thought I did and then read your friend's review and realised I don't!
I am now assuming that it's about a stalker. Now that must be what makes this such a chilling poem.
Cleverly penned and that last line does give one the shivers in that context, because he will wait and time is of no consequence to such a person.

Oooh Julie, this one gave my goosebumps chills! Happens all too often, you wrote a gorgeous poem but it's a dark subject matter for so many women. Brava my friend.

Terrifying scenario painted by your words here, Julie. The chill I felt reading this one will linger quite a while, I am sure. Unfortunately there are many such creeps in our society who get a thrill scaring and hurting innocent victims. You have written this so well, Julie. Lydi**

How awful for you, Julie. The stuff nightmares are made of!
My dearest friend Jewels, Most will never know what this is about, and I will not be the one to tell, but what you have done here is more than just write a chilling poem. This piece is so much more than meets the eye, and it still gives me chills and scares the hell out of me when I think about the impetus of its origins. The way you pull thoughts, feelings and emotions together to create a masterfully written piece about personal experiences is breathtaking. I just love, and hate this piece, and I hope you know what I mean by that.. Look forward to reading more. Trace.

I enjoyed the tale within the poem. Good to wait for the prey. I like the ending. Sometime somethings of beauty can make us forget our true purpose. Thank you for the excellent poetry.
