this is probably one of my all time favorite images. it's flitted in and out of my life for probably more than 5 years now. i think about it often

the tenderness in this ostensibly clinical photo makes me want to fucking scream. i can almost feel that warm touch on my teeth

the scraggly tweed on a little thin pale hand aaaaaaaaaaa

@byttyrs it screams "it's impossible to fake care like that"

@byttyrs this image represents so much about artifice and human compassion that it cut right through my irony-poisoned brain like an acetylene torch when i first saw it on tumblr in like 2013

@selontheweb this is a good thing to post in someone's sadposts
