We made a vow, you and I. Before the altar we declared our love to the world. For a time I was the happiest a man could be.
But you broke that vow. You and him. Together you betrayed my trust, despoiled our love. My wife and my brother. I couldn't believe it at first. All too quickly what was joy turned into a hate so bright it provided the only light in my darkness.
And so here I am, digging a shallow grave for you both in the soft soil. I kept my promise - till death do us part.

    I love this one. I find it very realistic and the feeling is very powerful and sad. The betrayal, the promise kept :(
