Army of One and Only One
Spoken from the heart.
Not a day goes by that I regret leaving the Army.
It saddens me deeply that I did so little in the time I had. I was a terrible mechanic and I always felt I was a terrible soldier.
And maybe this is depression talking, but I don't even deserve that much.
I spent 6 months in Iraq while I have buddies that finished that 06-07 tour and still had to go back again and again...
Every day I wake up from dreams of a better day, a day where I got over my illness and was welcome back. False times of spending in Iraq doing something meaningful. I wake up knowing it was a dream and I try to go back to sleep to recapture this dream, illusion, delusion.
I hate being acknowledged as a veteran. i hate going to the VA. I feel ashamed. I mentally shy away from other veterans, especially OIF vets. I dont belong with that crowd. Its like high school all over again.
I try to wear an army hat or shout hooah, or thank a vet for their service, but my stomach churns in pain reminding me

Old Pirate Rhyme
Life on the sea can make a man frown,
It knocks you back, forth, and all around,
The Cap’n makes a fuss, sun rise to sun down,
O’ what I’d give to hear me Maggie’s soft sound,
Me Maggie’s a beauty,
She isn’t a brute,
She’ll love ya for free,
So kick off your boots,
Me heart is a lock and she has the key,
So Maggie, me love, please wait for me!
Long days, no breaks, me life’s a mess,
Father’s winds blow, wrackin’ me much stress,
I can’t take another day, me soul must confess,
I long for me Maggie and her skin to caress,
Me Maggie’s a beauty,
She isn’t a brute,
She’ll love ya for free,
So kick off your boots,
Me heart is a lock and she has the key,
So Maggie, me love, please wait for me!

Without a Sound Mind
Congested without a cold
Driving without a steering wheel
Walking without legs
Not a home run

Facets of a Decent
My mouse is broken
It double clicks for every one click
For everyone else, it works just fine
My mouse is Michigan J. Frog
I’m in a constant state of will I or won’t I exist
My world is in a box
I’ll never know the outcome
I am Schrodinger’s Cat
The thoughts are always rapping on my mind
Burrowing in my head to make a home
Luckily he only comes out when I’m depressed
He is Woody Woodpecker
Inset woodpecker noise here

Blackrabbit-98's Profile Picture

Artist | Professional | Literature
United States
I grew up in New England. I fell in love with fantasy through old TSR books, Dungeon and Dragons, and Willow. That love has stuck with me throughout my life, even when I was serving in Iraq as a US soldier. In the army I was the huge nerd that ran the tabletops every weekend morning.

Since I've been discharged, I've been struggling with deep depression that has only been kept at bay for my love to write. I used poetry as a mean of therapy and my novel as a tool to show myself that there's alway something over the horizon to fight for.

Finally over my saltiness

Mon Apr 1, 2019, 10:50 PM
My grudge is Samurai Duelers League is finally over.

Although they hijacked my group :iconb4t5r: and made it their own thing, throwing it into so much chaos and stress for me that i left for a 6 month hiatus from DA

And i lost a battle that i thought was sooooo good, it was like my best battle piece ever.

8 years later, im done. I dont even think SDL is still a thing.

So heres some work i did for the group

Shredded Angel by Blackrabbit-98  SDL: Free Sample-3 by Blackrabbit-98  SDL: RR3 Lovely Day MiX by Blackrabbit-98

No more salt for them. Out of salt.


Next up, Hey guys heres the sitch on my art for DA

After my oct AssassinsDance-OCT is done, im through with OCT's and duels. I dont like the direction the community is going, so im going to wash my hands of all that jazz.

I think im going to continue: 

Fall of the Apex  Fall of the Aphex: Part 4 by Blackrabbit-98 and Project Shatter Frame  Wisper vs Dust Pg4 (Project Shatter Frame) by Blackrabbit-98
Cause I got to keep my battle skills sharp.

aaaaand, i guess ill keep posting other art and top 10's on DA....what am i going to do, go to tumblr? LOLOLOL!
