Memories...



...are hard to escape at times.  

Lately 
I will wake up 
in the middle of the night 
having 
remembered 
some event 
from forty years ago.  

Something 
that has passed 
and is gone 
and is lost 
forever.  

But still 
it is stuck 
in my mind 
to the point 
where 
it will 
wake me up.  

Something unresolved.  

Something uncompleted.  

Something 
left hanging.  

We all know 
that we can't change 
the past 
but if that is the case 
then why 
is it so difficult 
to let it go?
