So if you wanna burn yourself remember that I LOVE YOU,
And if you wanna cut yourself remember that I LOVE YOU,
And if you wanna kill yourself remember that I LOVE YOU,
Call me up before you’re dead, we can make some plans instead,
Send me an IM, I’ll be your friend

Pro tip: Many insect-pollinated flowers contain ultraviolet pigments that only their pollinating insects (and perhaps birds) can see. Many flowers are more strikingly coloured in the UV than in the visible spectrum. Furthermore, markings, visible only in the UV, act as taxi markers to guide the landed insects to the pollen and nectar food rewards. via
The Elysian Fields were a place in Greek mythology where the souls of heroes and righteous people went to rest. In this land of eternal peace and happiness, the souls were absolved from all suffering. They had infinite time to stroll through the pale meadows, surrounded by music, poplars and asphodels. The last, a type of flower, came to symbolize death, grief, sadness, melancholy, sentimentality — and eternity.
In the words of English poet Alfred Lord Tennyson:
Others in Elysian valleys dwell,
Resting weary limbs at last on beds of asphodel
