How is it that one song, one line, one lyric throws you back into a memory so intensely in an instant that the world around you seems to fade and be replaced by that memory?
I found an old CD made for me like the equivalent of a mix tape for someone you love. It hit me like a ton of bricks. The memory of that moment. A cascade of emotions in a split second. Each song has it’s own emotions attached to it. At the time it was one of my most treasured possessions but stumbling across it has reminded me of the heartbreak I felt when my first ever love disappeared out of my life almost overnight.
Just another part of my emotional rollercoaster that needs “recovery”
