It's annoying
Coming back to problems you wished would have vanished during your absense
Returning to stains you hoped would wash away while you were gone.
You didn't see them when you were away,
So maybe they didn't exist.
Maybe they still don't.
But no- they do.
And you come back,
And you wish you hadn't.

wow. i really like this.
the worst is the illusion of it all. your pull the shirt out of the wash slowly, hoping that stain of shame and guilt is gone. and for a moment, it looks like it is.
sometimes, if you tilt your head just so, and squint a bit- it looks like its gone. and you breathe a sigh of relief. you're safe.
until you open your eyes.
