Found on G+.5-11-15. by Stijn Dijkstra. No Way Back.

I wonder why it is

That we can’t let go

Of memories that haunt us

Even though we say, “No.”

It seems in getting distance

And allowing breathing space

Our pain fades more quickly

To allow us some grace.

We want to fix the problem

That existed in the past.

We miss what we remember

And we want to hold fast

To the good that we cherished

From  ones who made us feel

All kinds of emotions 

And helped us to heal.

We forget the reasons why

We had to go away.

All we seem to think about

Is getting them to stay.

Confused by our emotions,

Our thoughts go round and round.

The tears keep on falling,

Yet we can’t make a sound.
