I'll Burn Your Name Into The City

(Inspired by Mathew Atchley of Hot Spot Studio's "The Joker and the Thief" a drawing on the marriage of the Joker and Harley Quinn.)

Lost in memories of padded walls
Mind-numbing pills and 
Psycho-babble spiels. 
I fell through the cracks
Of manipulation and seduction.

Trying to entice you.
Make a device of you.
Acted like I despised you.
But as I abused you
And seduced you

I broke somewhere between
Reality and insanity.

Now I’ll watch as the fire
Blazes behind your masked eyes.
And we share smiles
Brought by pain
And mutual love of misery.

Our own sadistic victory.
While I burn your name into the city.

    Massive! The stories between those two characters is mind-blowing & a psychological tour de force. Those two sharing "love" together, makes for quite the destructive environment. This was very, very well done!

    Thank you. I actually did some research on Harley Quinn to try and make it has real as possible.
