At times it seemed that life itself was an illusion, that the flickering blur of days was no more than the fevered dream of a man in a coma, perhaps. And where did these fragments of time go when they were unattended? In my consciousness and in my memories, they decomposed; places I had been and people I had known rotted away and became abstracted by the passage of time, ultimately swirling into the ether. They were consigned to oblivion, and yet I felt certain that somewhere and somehow they still existed - and by their very being they were proof that this present moment was little more than a veil about to be torn away as well.

a desolate magic
it must have been something i did
speak of the peacefulness
last call
a measured response
you're on your own
