Leftover Pain

Our memory is often deep and wide, but surely lessens over time.
   We are reminded, once in a while, of how things were or how things hurt, but we are selective in what we remember.
   We have to be.
   Leftover pain, again and again, still numbs like it did and hurts like it always will.
