I shouldn’t have been me, but it was
It was a matter of life and death
We ran out of resources, yet I denied
That by killing you I will stop this war
War, people, life, death
Love, fear, losing, friends
We never knew it would’ve ended like this
From the moment I joined, I begun to have a will
But it didn’t took long enough for them to call me the witch
Everyone knew my scarlet power, and at some point they feared it.
But there was one man who saw me different.
One mind, who showed me mercy.
Who called me dear, who made me love
And together we met the world.
Running from the authorities we went
Until circumstances reunited old friends.
We expected a threat and with power he emerged
Nobody could beat him as my choice was made
I tried, I cried and suppressed the anxiety that I held
It wasn’t the moment to crumble, it was time to stay strong
Just like I did when my brother left the world.
We felt each other as he accepted his fate,
My tears rolled down as the enemy came
I held him back, asking why life was unfair
But it was imminent, even if we all became dead
At least I could finish my last quest
He finishes his words as my heart aches
The damage is done, he vanishes in the air.
Everything got stopped, the war has ended
And I felt his hand pat my head.
I flinch in fear, natural of my kind
Perhaps, there’s still humanity in me
After killing the love of my life.
His words are deep, he calls me his child
He feels empathy for me?
He could never understand.
In the blink of an eye I saw him again,
He was brought back to life
Just to kill it himself.
It was in seconds, and with my last breath
I tried to stop him but he threw me away.
It was done, we’ve all lost.
The air felt cold as I reach his grey
It was a lifeless body, the reflection of pain
My dear, my love, what I have done?
I feel my body face his ultimate goal
This time I surrender, there’s no point in keep going
Laying back as my soul is kept away from hurting
I close my eyes, giving up, felling the last sense of guilt and regret.
“I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry”.
