The storm was sudden and swift
Though it caught me unawares
I didn’t mind or fight the drift
Nor was I conscious of my tears

The cold water burned all around
As my naked skin endured the pain
My body floats as my heart hit the ground
Realising loving you was all in vain

Though I’ve been here many times
I fear, this time, I might not survive
Death’s chants and nursery rhymes
Stamp out my fire’s will to thrive

My flames have been taken by a bocian
My will of fire is no more
It will be buried deep in the ocean
Along with my heart riddled with sores
