Between The Sin And Its ‘Sin-drome’

We victims choose to be pilgrims
Who look forward to mortal tryst
Our nemesis finds a new sin-o-nym
It is our pain’s profound Alchemist!

“I fell in love with my tormentor”
“He scares, despairs yet truly cares”
“I love this sadistic encounter”
Hear out true tales of our affairs!

Why those ‘maniacs’ seem more benign
Than socialites of this vicious world
Who flaunt to death their steely spine
Unlike the rest who die in a herd!

This unholy marriage of souls
Is ingrained in our chromosome
Let life smolder raking Stockholm’s coals
Between The Sin And Its ‘Sin-drome’!
