When the oceans swallow the sun and dies
And rays of light illuminate the moon,
Violent winds will ignite the empty skies.

Tonight, I’ll sing alone to my surprise:
Seasons change within this April’s June
When the oceans swallow the sun and dies

Cold winds carry my thoughts and waves goodbye
While morning glories awaken and bloom;
Violent winds will ignite the empty skies.

Constellation symphonies sing out in lights
To shine on the horizon’s whistled tune
When the oceans swallow the sun and dies

Without breathing, I’ll put my heart aside
To watch it float like a hot-air balloon;
Violent winds will ignite the empty skies.

Can you see the untrustworthy sunrise?
I’ve been following it all afternoon
When the oceans swallow the sun and dies
Violent winds will ignite the empty skies.

I wrote this for my poetry class a while back and took a lot of time revising and listening to it over and over to make it perfect.
