The sea lilies bloomed blue that year                                                                and from the bud came long white hairs.

Made the coral turn to a deeper shade of the sea.                                        What shall it be?
After the flowers have wilted then died
will your tears turn the bluest sea to salt?
Who's fault shall it be?
All the fish in the sea couldn't fill me
with a desire to set every volcano on fire.

Though it seemed like they all would but who could?
Cause I haven't sailed into a sunset yet
no not yet.

The smoke and the ash arose.
The temperature quickly doved
so it snowed and snowed
I thought it would never end
It was only to begin.
A dirt of soot that clung to every ones foot.
Now my nose hurt.

My toes ached that crusted then baked.
Every one who looted by came to take.
No one shared
No one dared.
no one cared
In the year the sea lilies bloomed blue
and from the bud came long white hairs
Though it seemed like they all would but who could?
Cause I haven't sailed into a sunset yet
no not yet.

Your poem appears to be a natural allegory for a passionate and volatile relationship.
