the fault in our stars by jyoujo the fault in our stars by jyoujo

When someone dies and no one will misses them ,
the mourning is assigned to a random human .
this is why you sometimes just feel sad for no reason .

- tumblr anon .

Pearl Jam - " Sirens "

you know me . like every year . here it is .

Since these spider Lilies usually bloom near cemeteries around the autumnal equinox, they are described in Chinese and Japanese translations
of the Lotus Sutra as ominous flowers that grow in 地 獄(also known as Hell), and guide the dead into the next reincarnation.
A famous legend is of two elves: 曼 珠, who guarded the flower, and 沙 華 who guarded the leaves. Out of curiosity, they defied their fate of guarding the herb alone,
and managed to meet each other. At first sight, they fell in love ♥ with each other. G.O.D, exasperated by their waywardness, separated the miserable couple,
and laid a curse on them as a punishment: the flowers of 曼 珠 shall never meet the leaves of 沙 華 again.
It was said that when the couple met after death in hell , they vowed to meet each other after reincarnation. However, neither of them could keep their words. ♥

Some other legends have it that when a person sees someone that they may never meet again, these flowers, also called red spider lilies,
would bloom along the path. Perhaps because of these sorrowful legends .

"I forget, tell me again
what do you want
you'll be close, not close enough
not close enough for my kind of heart
you say words you can't take back
used to be love
now it's words hard to look at
hard to look at with the lights on
in your head it must not sound so bad
or why would you say it
when you know I feel it"

i just read the John Green's book "the fault in our stars"

Thank you for naming this flower and explaining it's myth.

For several years now, I've been periodically seeing it here and there in various artworks and media, and heard of its connection with death and hell, but I never could get anyone to tell me what the flower was called. I'm happy to finally know. :)

Though the myth made me sad. </3
