Distortions in space?

just not the place I remember
not my town, but it was late
I remember it ran red with
the laughter of vines,
how colourful times were
back then.
Ghosts that now flit between
half lit by the light of a neon
can someone please tell me
what happened and when.
If space is expanding
can the pundits inform me
why am I still standing here?
Yesterday is not far behind me
coming up fast on the blind side
to blind me with truths I once
held to be true.
My advice,
never look in the rear view mirror
it only tells you
what you already know.
