The Cut of Your Jib


Immortality does not mean living forever. It just means living until there's nothing left…

You danced your way to the end of the world. An existence built upon corpses. A bloated Sun and a blasted Earth as your final witnesses. You watched mankind dwindle and die - despite your efforts, despite what you turned them into. Despite what you did afterwards. You watched your kin fall from elegance and grace - to become twisted nothings without care or worry. And you wondered, in that final twilight, if you should have followed them. If you should have warped your mind and flesh to revel in blissful ignorance. Would that have been, in the end, better? Better than clinging - with almighty strength - to the last vestiges of yourself like only a handful of others had chosen to do? There is no answer. Your past self is not accountable to you. All you can say is that you chose to march on, heedless and unchanging. Chose to forget - so many things, and so many feelings - so that you could sustain your limping existence.

And when all was said and done, when even hope itself seemed apt to die, you found escape. A way out. To a world that still breathed. To the sounds of laughter, and birds. You had forgotten such things. Just as you have forgotten how to appreciate them. But perhaps ancient memories will stir - alongside ancient hungers…

Dare you hope for such a thing?
