Black Hearts Floating

Black hearts floating on the wind
Come to rest at my feet
They shatter as they hit the earth
In a million pieces across the street
I raise my head to see their faces
Black hearts kiss me on the cheeks
There are no familiar places I know
Where my feet can reach
There is nowhere I can run to
No safe haven for me
I’m scared of what I’ve made myself
Nothing can bring me peace
I’ll escape this all one day
As a seed may grow to a tree
When finally my heart can rest
And the black hearts vanish around me.
