Random Acts of Cruelty (#7)

I took you to the river
    to show you blood flowing
We dropped a rock in
    and it swept away
You cried
    because the rock had no power
You wanted to build a bridge
    of planks and rope
But I told you
    of the danger of the other side

You tried to skip stones
    but the flinty shale
    cut your fingers
You dripped your blood
    into the river
    and the drops were swept away
On the way back to the car
    I wiped away our footprints
    so you could never return
