Based on A Sadness runs Through Him by The Hoosiers
There are two kinds of twins in the world. Best friends, and mortal enemies. He was once one, now he has become the other. From childhood he has been in the shadows. They were as close as siblings could be, but one was always better. He was a shadow, the other was light. Light never has to fight for anything. Shadows struggle to survive.
One day, the shadow gave up on the light. He let himself drown in darkness. Now he hunts. He does not run in fear. He has become better. And he will make sure the light knows it.
I am the light. I took something he thought was his, and he let the cracks in his heart turn to veins of poison. He ran, and when he finally stopped, he had nowhere to go. Until the serpent came, and offered him redemption. He went with them, and his mind lost all concept of empathy. He was gone.
He is no longer my brother.
Impatient to be better, now lost to oblivion.
He became a puppet, but his strings led elsewhere.
He has tried to get revenge for so long. Now he is here. I step back, aware that there is a wall behind me that will prevent me from going further. I am trapped. This is it.
"Don't look at me with those eyes," he sings softly, something in his gaze softening for a moment. But only for a moment...
Then it is gone, and the bullet fires.
He couldn't be saved.
And now I am gone.
