Track Name: moonz
dazzling shine encircled by shadows
toward a night of resplendent light?
flash of reflective illumination?
reprieve from the void of night?
a trespass... of the moon?
a flicker of a discordant plight... of the moon?

'obscure presence at the limit'
'the haunting of a night sky by illusions'
'hazy' brightness silenced with shade

into a vast darkness of a moonless night
a rekindling of a world excepting twilight
Track Name: atop a crumbling mount
an ascent condemned
glancing back at solid ground

cleft reflections
faith falls effortlessly
spun stones in effigy
but does a trace remain?

this curious chasm
the gentle noose of comforts past

echoes stifled
silent sorrows
wavering surrender

swept away
barren in patience
to relinquish, an exile
or escape

in thrown assurance
a wandering fate
Track Name: a chase
a chance flight
in veiled projection
the regalia
of the groundless

momentum, devotion
a moth's determination
the gleaming promise
refracted tunnel vision

a pathos of distance
circadian passions
entranced and drawn
beyond the point of diminishing returns

caught up in the wake of life so-called
is this more than mirage?
is this a mere image?
Track Name: perhaps a milieu
in this lonely space
cast adrift, directionless
what's shared is merely lack

try to live this lie
a play of empty stares
drowning in the assault of examples

severed connections
does it make a sound
when the walls come down?
encroached, contracted
a contact within bounds

bypassed encounters
as words become misconstrued

is it coherence or confusion?
cultivated in absentia

a yearning scene unheard
recast, tossed into
the torpor of circles
