Flashback


Everyone's here

But no one's here

Where I am

Three feet away

And I don't feel a thing

Not a single jolt of comfort

So close in the physical world

But I'm thousands of minutes behind

Back in my own mind

Daydreaming

Remembering

Flashbacks

Memories

They all sneak up on me suddenly

I open my eyes and expect the past

And the present is brought forth

With such rapidness

It takes me a minute to take it all in

Everyone's here

But no one's really here

Where I am
