The twisted tree
it turns
in the
wind

Twists and claws
at all
in its
wake

Long bony fingers
reach for
something
Anything
You

Asleep in your
bed you
suddenly awake
Fearful
Scared

For you’re sure
you’re being
watched
From outside
by something

Something ancient
Old as time
Scraping at
the window

Shadows play on
the walls
creeping
closer

Finally you fall
asleep eventually
Hiding
under the
sheets

Whilst outside the
Twisted Tree
Breathes
Watches
Claws away
