The Flashback

i had a flashback yesterday
a shot of pure nostalgia
it was like being in a train
and entering a tunnel
seeing flashes of light pass by
then being enveloped by pitch black
the edges of memories blurring
the context getting sharper
and it's all rushing by
while you desperately try to replay the flashback
face by face, moment by moment, detail by detail
and even thought you want to control the speed
you can't.
it was nice while it lasted
much like an alcohol-soaked evening
all you're left with when its over
is the bitter after-taste and a hangover.
