Versus by K-EL-P Versus by K-EL-P
:star: Prints available of my artwork are available @ society 6 [link]

This is about Thanatos vs. Eros, or Death Instinct vs. Self-preservation which are personified by my skelies.
Also the nerves that are anchoring the feet are spilling a type of Morse Code.

Personally I've never acted out my death drive but the thought of self-destruction has crossed my mind (i.e. thought of what it would be like to drive off of a bridge).
From my own perspective, this isn't about suicidal thoughts but more about the curiosity of what death would bring. "morbid ain't it"

Death is the final frontier of human exploration.

I believe death is awesome, but dying sucks. I say get the most you can out of life (you only get one ticket, might as well use it) and don't worry too much

Very true; with some deaths you cannot avoid it or even see it coming so why fret? :)

Each moment of my crawling sins...
Detaching my senses for compassion...
A slow atrophy of existence...
Deathly tugging at any means of remissions...

Creatures falling, creatures creeping, confused delusions...
Slithering, oozing from my own household...
Misguided headers from the truth...
Looking to vamp you into folly coops...

Fighting endlessly into deeper dementia...
Hell on the side lines waiting for...
Me to call upon the one who saves...
While hounds inject my veins in panic waves...

Listen to the one hears you...
Fight for that which means everything to you..
Climb down your self proclaimed majesty...
Or tell me what the next move is gonna be.

### Revised
### How do I delete a comment? Is that possible?

I see the ancients calling, they seem to me alive..
Each moment of my crawling, sins detach my sense of pain..
A slowly atrophy, of existence that remains...
Deathly tugging, waging, at any means of reign...

Creatures falling, creatures creeping, confusion on its way...
Slithering and oozing, from my own household of pain...
Misguided headers moving, from the truth of lasting grace...
Looking to vamp you into, folly coops where rodents invade...

Fighting endlessly I wonder, into deep dementia...
Hell on the side lines, waiting for me to call...
Upon the one who saves us, of fire pits from the grave...
While hounds inject my veins, into a panic formed in waves...

Listen to the one who hears you, fight for that which means most to ya...
Climb down your selfish throne and, your self exalted majesty...
Or tell me mister, what's the next move gonna be?

My mind runs on that same spectrum. Not the same waves, but similar patterns...


Anyway, this is fantastic! Awesome work here!

I think it's healthy to occasionally be considerate of your own mortality, both sides of it.

And thanks!

I love your little skellies.

And I understand that death drive thing, I actually found myself thinking about that on the drive home a few days ago...

I love the fact the skelies are trying to save that person (instead of killing him/her like usually happens in most of skeleton pictures) and they're so cute like always! :la:

They're sweet little kids...aside from the little skelie without its lower half, that one just doesn't care...6-6

But it is weird to see skeletons kill people, because they were once people, unless they have "life-envy". Than it makes since. XD
