there is a women in China holding a black umbrella so she
won’t taste the salt of the rain when the sky begins to weep,
there is a 17 year old girl who smells like pomegranates and has summer air tight on her naked skin, wrapping around her scars
like veins in a bloody garden, who won’t make it past tomorrow,
there is a young man, who buys yellow flowers for the woman
in apartment 84B, who learned braille when he realized she
couldn’t read his poetry about her white neck and mint eyes
there are people watching films,
making love for the first time, opening mail with the
heading of ‘i miss you’, cooking noodles with
organic spices and red sauces, buying lemon detergent,
ignoring ‘do not smoke’ signs, painting murals
of his lips in abandoned warehouses, chewing
the words ‘i love you’ over and over again, swallowing
phone numbers and forgotten birthdays, eating
strawberry pies, drinking white wine off of each
others open mouths, ignoring the telephone,
reading this poem
someone is thinking
someone finally understands
they never really
The island known as the “island of madness”, “hell” and “the most haunted place on Earth” is being sold!
Here’s a quick, history behind it:
The plagued people were shipped off to Poveglia Island, a small, secluded land mass that floats between Venice and Lido. There, people lived out the last of their wretched lives together until they died.
Since the island already reeked of death, the next time an epidemic came along, barely alive bodies were dumped there and burned in mass graves.
In the 20s, a mental hospital was built to welcome the island’s newest “guests,” or anybody that showed symptoms of any sort of sickness, physical or mental.
Basically, if you had an itch, away you went to Poveglia where you’d sink your feet into the soil (half dirt, half human ash) and be in the company of over 100K diseased ghosts.
It didn’t help when the place was converted into a hospital for the mentally ill in 1922. Rumor has it, the hospital was home to a number of crude lobotomies, performed by a doctor who’d been driven mad by the ghosts. He later flung himself off the bell tower.
The Italian government is now offering a 99-year lease to whomever’s brave enough to take it over.The italian government thinks it would make a great hotel destination!
Sending the call out, I want to make a scars accent for Kerborou (I already revealed his name so *shrugs* I’m not going to call him ‘Omeci’s mate’ anymore)
Can I see some gembond Coatl males wearing all 3 scar apparel? Doesn’t matter if it’s dark or veterans, I am looking at how they cut across the gembond gene for reference. Show off your warrior boys! Let’s see those smexy scars~!
I don’t think that scars will show up on coatl males when equipped? Correct me if I’m wrong but I have trouble with getting them to show up.
I can confirm that at least with my coatls, the scars don’t show

One of the more morbid legends of how tea was discovered, but one of my favourite ones.
Hey guys, thatsweetjaz created a super awesome comic for my tea blog, which needs some more posts but is definitely up! I am so in love with the art style she chose for the legend. There will be more things like this as well as information!
So if you love tea (of course you do, you follow me right?) check out, follow, reblog, signal boost, etc!
Blank dolls for Tea Monster project came in today. Kind of wanna start removing the hair and blanking the faces tonight but I should probably wait until tomorrow, especially since I don’t even have the hair or doll needle yet.
