Updated 7/28/10

i've been bummed out latey and today was especially sad. so anyways this is a random de-bumming drawing i did through out school. we had extra time in Japanese^-^ well actually we WERE supposed to be working, eh well thats what weekends are for.

i think this drawing doesnt quite stand alone so i plan to con my friend into writing a poem to add in later. because me writing literature is like a five year old building a sky scrapper. just dont happen.

Here's some poetry people have send me that was inspired by "Memories of a Martyr"
I know i have more some where- I'll post those ASAP.

by Vampyre-Stuart
Long dark lashes lock up tight,
A symbol of this patron’s plight.
Bright blue eyes control the pain,
Discharging guilt, issuing blame.

Death and solace intertwined,
Piercing twin daggers in his mind.
Feathered wings of light chastise,
And shield him from hurt, he devised.

Drifting aimless, through the void,
Filled with despair, his faith destroyed.
Dignified gowns and filigree,
Turning sombre, eternally.

Mislaid teardrops form and shine,
Are frozen there, in space and time.
Cringing from his unseen fears,
Of worthless faith and unshed tears.

In the twilight of defeat,
Where sunlight wanes with subdued heat,
Bandages and rags still bind,
These Memories of a Martyr’s mind.

sorry i had to watermark it but people keep fucking stealing it!!!! i hate doing it because you can't even see the drawing anymore which is the whole point of putting it on online is so you guys can see it! lame!

READ OR DIE TONIGHT AT 10:35 ... ... P.M .9 years ago ...a person named jerry got dared to sleep in a house that was believed haunted. The .. Nextday his friends waited for him outside the house.... ..... ..... .... They had to go inside and search for him. They went through every room exept the attic. He wasn't supposed to sleep there. He was supposed to sleep in the living room they went to the attic. Hey saw Jerry's corpse and they just left because they were scared. But that night they all died because of their friend. He killed them all for making him sleep in that house if you don't send this to 11 comments you will die tonight by Jerry. Example 1: A man named Stewart read this and didn't believe it. He shut off his computer and went through his day. That night while he was in bed he heard something outside of his door. He got up to look. And now he's dead. Example 2: A girl named Haley Read this in the morning and she got scared but she didn't send it. She wanted to now if it was true. She went to school (She was only 13 years old) and that night she died. If you don't post this on 11 comments tonight jerry will 'visit' you his isn't fake. Apparently, if you you copy and paste this to ten comments in the next ten minuets you will have the best day of your life tomorrow. You will either get kissed or asked out, if you brake this chain you will see a little dead girl in your room tonight. In the next 53 minuets someone will say I love you

Hi. I've been looking for meaningful and emotional pieces of art i could possibly get tattooed. Been searching for over a year now and yours have struck a cord with me, on a more personal level than you think. Is it possible i could ask for your permission to get this tattooed?

The martyr looks so sad, curled up in pain, clenching his ankle?, eyes squeezed shut, trying to hold in tears, his hand at mouth, muffling sobs.

It's beautiful.

On the contrary, I think it does quite well standing on its own. It has a tortured but light quality to it.

dark and ominous. I like the contrast and the sepia color. It has great spacing and composition. Wonderfully composed, and executed with skill. Well done.
