Don't die, just disappear

There are some people who are always in the picture even after you've taken it out of the frame and thrown it away. They get under your skin, and not in the good way. They're a part of your past and it's difficult to forget about them - labotomy included.

Sometimes, when you think they're gone for good, they pop up at the most inopportune time: right before the last synaptic memory has re-programmed itself in your brain. Then, they're back.

It's at this moment where you want them to be gone. Forever. It's not that you want them dead, per se, you just don't want them to be alive. Or, at least, alive in your head. You want them to disappear. Vanish. Into the ether. And, you never want to think about them, again.

Just when you think they're gone for the umpteeth time, they reappear. And, the cycle starts all over again.

that's so true tho steven. i can't tell you how many time i have willed myself to purge them from my being only to turn a corner and come face to face with them.

and they never announce their arrivals do they? memory or otherwise when they surface, it always leaves an odd feeling in me.

thanks for sharing this tho.

I agree also, it is so true. I know of someone who is often in the social circle I run in. He often makes me angry with his constant making of racist and or bigoted comments. People keep inviting us to his parties! lol STOP IT! Great post.
