"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."

You say you won’t forget me
Until the heavens die.
You say that while the sea roars,
You won’t say good-bye.
You say you’ll never forget me,
But now I don’t know why,
I feel alone.

The heavens are dark, without a light,
Every sea is silent tonight,
My heart no longer burns so bright,
For upon my hope there lies a stone.

In the woods you fell astray,
They found and burned you on that day,
My beloved friend, they made you pay,
For no fault of your own.

Trees you scaled; your throat was slit,
You will not breathe my name one bit,
And so I call you as I see fit,
With this warm, icy tone.

Though none have heard me wail at all,
I, too will enter the forest’s hall,
I still have yet your fate to mourn.

Every boundary I will cross,
You’ll be avenged for our dear loss,
Till every soul is torn.

The author's comments:
A price must be paid for tearing two people so tightly bound to each other, apart.
