Description Inspired by the poem the poison tree by William Blake and the song bullet with butterfly wings by smashing pumpkins, as even by the Snow White fairy tale. The subject has two keys of reading- on a side, you have your heart blue, poisoned with the sorrow of long abuse and heartbreak- malicious words and actions are the green fire bullets that shot through it, leaving evidence of still raw wounds. The poisoned apple and the serpent are the natural fruit of leaving these emotions stewing inside - aggression responding to aggression, poison from poison born, malice rising to meet malice.On the other side, the heart is not only blue with sorrow- blue is also the color of water, of compassion, humanity, emphaty ... and it is water that pours from it and onto the last flame before it strikes. The serpent stands not only for deceit but also for renewal, healing and rebirth. Even the poisoned apple, tied to an idea of death and resentment, is weeping- as to say that most often behind anger hides sadness, and tears of self compassion may be healing and release.You can look at this heart and seeing it crumbling under the weight of pain, or you can see it opening up, waking up to shed its skin.You may find within the heart- source of all we can feel- both the antidote and the poison.
