He never really left.

His clothes and belongings were gone. Yet, every time I made tea or pet the cat, he sat there. Every time I bathed, his hands were soaping me. Having lunch with friends, I’d glance at my phone; expecting him to call.

He’ll never set me free.

“… but real hauntings have nothing to do with ghosts finally; they have to do with the menace of memory.” Β -Anne Rice
