How to chase old memories in the house.
Some memories will chase you, not matter how far you go. No matter how hard you try, once one leaks in your house, you will not get rid of it easily.
It starts the day you open the door home and feel that is somebody inside.
The door Is locked and the windows too. You got to the living, nothing. You go to the room, nothing neither, to the backyard, nothing. You get chill, go to the kitchen and bam, it is there probably cooking something.
First, and foremost, you have to learn to live with them, accept their presence, even if they appear naked in the coach, or showing in the bathroom, lying on the grass. Memories bound strongly to objects so –second- you have to get rid of your objects. It doesn’t matter if it was a shoe that she (or he) had given you for your birthday, or is a preciously handwritten letter. Get rid of it.
Important note. What you have to never do is to talk to them. Never. I mean it.
Sometimes they are strongly bound to the house too, that is hard to remove, for that matter just try to keep it really clean every day, open the Windows until the sun come in, and clean systematically the crystals.
It may happen that when the night falls they will come too, when the house is silent and noises are gone. They may walk out naked from the bathroom, or even you will hear them opening the fridge in the middle of the night. If it happens that walks in the room and lays down next to you in the bed, and start to whisper to you the things you had always wanted to hear, ignore them, do not talk to them, do not extend your hand to caress their hair.
Don’t give the chance to speak, because if they stay like that enougth time, they will eventually lose their voice, and their solidity. They will become eventually invisible to you, even though you may see just a pair of eyes going around the house for some time, or just a shadow walking in the rooms.
I won’t lie, they may stay for years. And even thought they will become invisible, and you may stop seeing them, they never go.
how you know? Someday your heart will shrink profoundly and you will feel suddenly sad. And you will not know why.
