Ascension by Jessica Curry
Dear Esther (Original Soundtrack)

Dear Esther. I have burnt my belongings, my books, this death certificate. Mine will be written all across this island. Who was Jacobson, who remembers him? Donnelly has written of him, but who was Donnelly, who remembers him? I have painted, carved, hewn, scored into this space all that I could draw from him. There will be another to these shores to remember me. I will rise from the ocean like an island without bottom, come together like a stone, become an aerial, a beacon that they will not forget you. We have always been drawn here: one day the gulls will return and nest in our bones and our history. I will look to my left and see Esther Donnelly, flying beside me. I will look to my right and see Paul Jacobson, flying beside me. They will leave white lines carved into the air to reach the mainland, where help will be sent.

Tumblr Requests

Audio requests! In order:

Anonymous requested: “Recite your favorite monologue from Dear Esther.”

isaacanger requested: “Ooh! Ooh! Ooh! Say, ‘Things have changed, Raoul.’ I will die.”

vidamemoria requested: “Spencer is a really cool guy and I would totally date him”

Anonymous requested: "Do not pass by my epitaph, traveler. But having stopped, listen and learn, then go your way. There is no boat in Hades, no ferryman Charon, no caretaker Aiakos, no dog Cerberus. All we who are dead below have become bones and ashes, but nothing else. I have spoken to you honestly, go on, traveler, lest even while dead I seem talkative to you.” (Apologies for my probably-way-off pronunciation here.)

poetrywritteningas requested: “You once were the light at my own tunnel’s end; a cure for the darkness that I could not mend. But the lighthouse has fallen from its perch on the coast, left me stranded like a sailor on seas of broken trust. And here your words come crushing down on my lungs with the weight of a thousand blistering suns, like the death of a child, a firstborn son at the hands of his family, the ones that he loved.”

In the Aeroplane Over the Sea

And it’s so sad to see the world agree
That they’d rather see their faces fill with flies
All when I’d want to keep white roses in their eyes
