Joseph, 21, Consumed by darkness. I want to be a better person, I do. But if given the opportunity I will not grasp it.

Asks are private











The Game of Life.

oh my god

what an interesting way to look at things.

lifes a gamble

and death always wins

because death has nothing to lose


Or maybe because Death’s a cheating whore look at that fuck hiding cards under his bony ass


Hands down, one of my favorite pieces ever.

You can’t cheat death.. But that doesn’t mean death can’t cheat you

Profound…..  The last statement in the thread catches the artists’ intentions brilliantly.  I saw that too….

I want to be a canvas and your lips the brushes,

your fingers the chalk, your tongue the ink that stains my skin.

Paint me in all your colours, 

drench me in acrylics, watercolours, coal.

I will be your masterpiece,

placed in a museum, adored for centuries to come.

Your name will forever be etched in my substance. 

You will fall in love with me. Then, just months later, you will fall out. I will pretend the entire time that I don’t know it’s coming.

Nature also has the power to heal us. Most medicines are derived, directly or indirectly, from plants. But nature can heal us mentally, too. Scientific studies have shown that natural scenes can reduce stress and anxiety, and have a strong calming and restoring effect. In one experiment, patients recovering from surgery were divided into two groups. One group was put in rooms that overlooked a copse of trees, the others had a view of a plain brick wall. Those with the natural view recovered faster, had fewer complications, and needed fewer painkillers.
