Stockholm Syndrome

Stockholm Syndrome

Now you tell me,
Now you hurt me,
Now you cut me,
Now you kill me.

Hilt deep, and then some,
The dagger's cruel blade
Pierces right to the quick.
I saw it coming, I knew
You'd butcher me one day.

But dumb as any cattle
I stood by, gazing intent,
Happy in my indolence
While you smiled serene
With a knife behind you.

And so you strung me
Lines of pleasantry;
Hearts left in your wake,
Waiting for the moment
To strike me unawares.

I resisted you at first,
Didn't let you inside,
Before you crept up
And kidnapped me,
Stole my heart away.

Sheepish in devotion,
I followed your heels,
Looking for scraps
Of affection and love,
Thinking you'd share.

Now I know the truth,
My captor, executioner.
You'd sooner let me die
Than open your heart
Or give to me your love.

Even as you strike,
Even as I bleed,
Even as I die,
Ever will I love.

:cry: So raw and sad--this is a fresh wound...I have been here, Saturn, and I know this horrible, aching place so well, that I can see and feel it coming with my eyes closed.
Very well and beautifully stated:

Sheepish in devotion,
I followed your heels,
Looking for scraps
Of affection and love,
Thinking you'd share.

Now I know the truth,
My captor, executioner.
You'd sooner let me die
Than open your heart
Or give to me your love.

Even as you strike,
Even as I bleed,
Even as I die,
Ever will I love.

The title is the name of a syndrome where a kidnap victim becomes infatuated with their captor and, in some cases aids in their crimes.
