Cherry Stain

October 6, 2009
Cherries melt in the sun
No where to go,
No where to run

The faces make you cry
As they cry too

But the world isn’t safe
It’s no paradise
We’re stuck here together
With no where to go
No where to run

Step in the melted fruit
Red staining your feet
Red staining your eyes
Staining the city herself

And I cry for her
It’s an injury we’ll never forget
She’s so precious
And yet this stain
Invades her beauty with tears

Fear rolls down the street
Emptying our hearts
Death invades our eyes
As we turn away to pray

For we’re not gods nor saviors
We’re only human
With a cherry stain
