Irony Is Seldom Absent (Dirk/Jake)"Who knows the end? What has risen may sink, and what has sunk may rise. Loathsomeness waits and dreams in the deep, and decay spreads over the tottering cities of men." -H. P. Lovecraft, "The Call of Cthulhu"
You are Jake English, and you've been living with him for nearly two years now. Or has it been longer? You can't really tell anymore. How long have you been here, in this room? You aren't sure, but it feels like these walls plastered in posters are all you can remember. You've stared at the posters for too long, and the faces of the actors and actresses have turned into a nigh-indistinguishable amorphous stain on the wall.
Occasionally, the faces pop back to life and stare at you with their dead eyes until you get spooked and he has to calm you down again with that voice of his.
It's much too calm, like it's been for the past year or so. Behind the calmness, you can hear the faintest sing-song quality to it, and that in itself unsettles you. You can't thin
Nervous MovementYou're a dime a dozen in a sea of billions.
Individuality has no significance in numbers so vast.
And while this fact makes looking forward hard
we can't keep living in the past.
You're a nervous movement in a freeze frame scene.
Steady hands won't help hold up such a fragile act.
And while you take your time keeping character
you fake what you can't take back.
With nothing more than a thought we form our actions
and this is where we extinguish the lie they tried to invent.
The lie that we painted our lives without passion
well conclusions are useless with no attempt to commence.
You're a song I can't name stuck in my head.
I've listened to you before and probably will again.
And while I can hum the melody all day long waiting
for it to hit me I still won't know where you've been.
You're a gust that has never changed direction.
Nothing can touch you you're only felt as you brush skin.
And while you can't be stopped nothing lasts
nothing escapes time not even the wind.
Keep in Touch!
