Please Understand

Someone please hear me.
Somebody please understand.
My intent was never to hurt
that by-standing man.
I was never one prone to violence,
never did I fight,
but my world shattered
at that cold and dreadful sight.
She was in his arms,
and he in hers,
my love, my wife,
my very world
and in passion I acted,
just as in passion I loved
and just back from the hunt,
I still had my gun.
I pointed and missed,
both he and she were spared,
but as for the by-standing man,
in my aim, I had erred.
I regret that it hit another,
but don't think I regret my intent,
for my wife was with my brother
and it was for him that the bullet was meant.
