The Bloody Looking Tree

Among the dark dense woods
there is an odd empty spot
where all is dead and nothing ever alive stood

Nothing there, but one strange tree
so dead no one would dare to see
its branches so terribly twisted
like broken bloody inhuman limbs

It had no leaves at all
or they all should fall
to be away from the scary living fruits
bloody eyes

Oh, horror! thousand human eyes
hanging by bloody veins
and dropping red liquid stains
should their pain ever die?

Veiny bloody eyes
so sorry not anymore blind
staring forever at the blinding darkness
where they can never hide
