Literature
Ode the the Dawn Chorus
With lilting cry and sweet harmonic call,
They brightly make their praise known unto God.
Thus dove and finch and songbirds one and all
To their grand Maker in the morn applaud.
Their wond'rous worship no man an abate,
Nor quell the south winds smooth and temperate;
They give the Sun's new rise an opus grand,
And in the dappled sunlight doth they flit.

Literature
I Am Nothing But A Vessel
I AM NOTHING BUT A VESSEL.
I am nothing but a vessel.
I am nothing but a vessel of love;
The sharp, stinging, poisoned kind
That's needy and jealous and burns so strong,
That burns like the midday Arab sun,
But keeps itself hidden for shame.
I am nothing but a vessel of anger;
The brutish, jackhammer, psycho-killer anger
That is never expressed but for the times
It is bellowed and screamed in context-less obscenities
In a car or in a field or in a forest
And keeps itself hidden for shame.
I am nothing but a vessel of misery;
The wash-it-away-with-sad-songs,
Drown-it-in-cheep-whiskey,
Burn-it-away-with-a-hot-teaspoon,
Why-the-hell-do-I-hate-me-so-much kind of misery;
The six-shooter-in-the-top-drawer,
Suicide-contingency-plan,
Exhaust-fume-is-the-most-peaceful-way,
Perhaps-I'll-just-drop-off-a-cliff,
What-is-the-point-anyway kind of misery;
The you're-not-with-me,
She'll-never-love-me,
I'll-never-win,
I'M-SO-LONELY kind of misery.
I am nothing but a vessel,
I am not Me, I can't be,

Today
Let no-one smile nor frown this day;
Let no-one laugh nor cry:
Today's the day our heart was broke;
The day that our soul died.

I am nothing but a vessel,
I am not Me, I can't be,
When I was Me I was happier,
I am nothing but a vessel,
Nothing, nothing, nothing but a vessel,
I am nothing but a vessel of cancerous love,
I am nothing but a vessel of bleeped-out anger,
I am nothing but a vessel of self-destructive misery,
I am nothing but a vessel.

I am nothing.

I am nothing but a vessel.

I'm a guitar teacher up in North East Scotland, suffering from multiple levels of insanity and a severe tendency to overdramatise my life.
And a frustratingly overactive imagination.
And a disjointed, illogical, and impossible-to-keep-up-with stream of consciousness.
Oh, and I'm pretty religious.
I concede that I may be a little strange.

I like to draw, and to write a little too, and obviously as a musician I play a lot of music. I mostly use Pencil and pen in Black and White, though I occasionally stray into Watercolours.
Recently I've been drawing an awful lot of Pokemon, hence why my gallery is full of them.

I don't actually celebrate my birthday, but thanks anyway! :-) Seems like it's been a while since there's been any SSMORN - I miss it! There's already been a few really funny moments!
I've currently discontinued my Nuzlocke - I dunno if or when I'll resume it.

Aww, I'm so sorry, just thought I'd tell you anyways!

Arm, yes. I've been slow with my SSMORN updates, totally beyond my control I'm afraid, and a lot of my time is robbed because of it.
I'm still working to get pages out there, and I appreciate you sticking around despite this.
But rest assured, SSMORN is far from discontinued. Sketches are being done as I type.

And speaking of discontinued, I'm so sorry to hear about your Nuzlocke. I kinda can see why you did: not much feedback, huh?
Try submitting them in some Nuzlocke groups, maybe? Also, if you enjoy doing it, you should continue!
