Twisted Tree

tree with planter

What the hell

is that awful smell

something is rotten

soon forgotten

in the twisted tree

alone with me

how could it see

steps I took

and the way I shook

beneath its bark

in the dark

where memories bring

a certain sting

to everything.

NaPoWriMo Day 28 – Skeltonic verse

Poetic Asides – write about a smell.
