The curse of memory

the past is where it is
the past
longing for what was
will never bring it back

regrets and dreams
no longer exist
visitors to history
banned

yet they hold on to us
the deepest recesses of our minds
are never really cleared
of those cobwebs

we cannot shake them
we cannot forget
something that does not exist
exists

memory is the friend
of the forgotten past
it keeps what is dead
alive

synapses forgiven
they’re just doing their job
no medicine
no pill
no surgery
will remove the intangible

is this the curse of man?
to never forget?
