"Humankind cannot gain anything without first giving something in return. To obtain, something of equal value must be lost. That is alchemy's first Law of Equivalent Exchange."

Whenever I close my eyes, your face is all I see.
The moment of your deceit
I commit to memory.
Under love I faced defeat,
Drinking up your lies,
Until all was lost
Among bitter-sweet cries.
I deny my love not,
I still hold you near,
It cannot be forgot,
My dear friend, I fear.
You beg to repent,
But nothing can be undone.
Just as I relent,
Your tears that I shun.
I'm sorry for our loss,
I'm sorry for what I say,
Yet I truly walk across
To the opposing side today.

This is from the perspective of someone whose been betrayed by a loved one, for any reason. Someone who was bone-crushingly lied to.
