Painful Memories

Painful memories once numbed by
time and care, scratch at the surface.
Willing to be remembered, desperate
for attention.  To release them would 
mean reliving a time best forgotten. 
Resist.  Resist opening old wounds
only to try and heal them closed again.
Resist giving fuel to the unresolved 
and misunderstood intentions of past
relations.  Soothe the irritation with
renewed hope and understanding.
Leave the memories where they
now belong.  Unable to hurt or taint
your tomorrows.
