I've used my memories to bind you here.

Strengthening my hold with remembered angers and fears.

I meant to ensure you had no escape in death.

I determined that you'd  find no peace throughout eternity.

I would tie you to your sins and never let you go.

But the bond which denies your release was born too strrong.

And now I know that I've done myself the wrong.

Revenge is an ancient and eternal curse,

That poisons my life's shining flame.

The prisoner and the guardian,

Bound together in endless blame.
