This is beautiful... in its talent, in its agony, and in its complexity. It is really hard for me to express both my thoughts and emotions concerning this piece: they firstly come in waves, and secondly: I am at a loss for the proper words to give clear expression. I really just admired and respected this piece: You captured a very hard concept, and you made it completely unique and raw. It holds all the pain, confusion, and love that I think comes from feeling like the poison to someone's soul.

The detail and complexity to this also stole my breath away.... the way this person wishes more than anything to not taint what is pure, yet they cling because it's something they want to hope for... be it purity, love; it's something I think some can relate to with unbearable intensity.
When I looked closer I also realized the claws digging in to keep the other from leaving... but also wounding, and I assume this causes more emotions to conflict and war, while desire and hope clash, too. Then I noticed the detail that struck me the most emotionally: the roots (or at least they look like roots) sprouting from the arm of the one who is 'poisoned'. This to me... it impacted me in a way I don't think any sentence could hope to describe or give weight to. They wish to root themselves... to cling and make a home in this other person's heart... yet it can also be seen as the spreading of the poison. Then comes the fact they are intertwined so close together, that I believe I see the close need and love from both parties. They rub off different tendencies and emotions onto each other, yet one's is toxic... and how indescribably painful to be the toxic party... desiring to love and hold yet being held back by that same love. It's a painful madness... an unending insanity.
Thank you for making this... and I hope, perhaps, the emotions could be comforted by their artistic release. I only apologize I could not fully appreciate this piece.

Oh, thanks a lot for those words... It means a lot to me to know that my art is understood and appreciated and the way you describe emotions it has caused is fascinating. Thank you =) You really got the idea.
