  • I’m gonna try to explain a feeling that won’t make any sense:
    The bleeding heart flower is oddly scary and by looking at It I somehow get paranoid, The flower to me looks like an illusion and would make me a bit nervous in real life.
    I didn’t think It would be poison but It makes sense now.
    Its still very beautiful though:)
