death and the tango

The dead should stay buried….and realize that what they leave behind is residue…residual effects of their presence. Strong memories should satisfy, even the trace should suffice. We grieve. We celebrate. We mourn. We decorate the graves of some and dance on others. A part of us dies with them sometimes, and eventually after enough torture,and wondering bewilderment, we move on.

And yet the ghost appears…with no care or awareness that they are no longer part of this world…that their memory is intertwined with the grieving’s present. Perhaps they are aware. All you can hope for is the true sense of acceptance and freedom from the bondage of the past…..
