flashback. [flash-bak]- recurrent and abnormally vivid recollection of a previous experience.
For better or worse, ones mind stores far more memories than one would think.
Life has a way of reminding us of these, especially at some of our weakest points.
Regardless the number of blinks, the strength in your head shakes, or trying to place new thoughts to counteract this flashback from occuring;
The memories are still there.
And there is no erasing them.
"I'm not completely sure we aren't all living in a hallucination now." -Marc Maron.
