You were once my brother
No one else, not another
I trusted you with my life
With my heart, with my wife

You had betrayed me
Took the love of my soul
I love her, can't you see?
And left my heart a gaping hole

I was shocked, stunned, ravaged
Wrathful beyond my manage
Blinded, seething with hate
I charge forth, burning, enraged

Heart aflamed, I challenge you
To a dual, a battle of two
Our swords shall settle the rivalry
To death, or victory eternally

We fought, the words thrown away
While our loved ones wept in dismay
I bled, my friend, but so did you
We both crumbled, dying like fools

Why had I been so hasty, so rash
That through our friendship I had smashed
Weeping in death, in misunderstanding
A pair of shattered, bloody beings

In regret, I promise, 
dear brother
We'll meet again, in this life
Or another...
