Your memory is a monster; you forget - it doesn't.
It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you - and summons them to your recall with a will of its own.
You think you have a memory; but it has you!

Memory can be protection; a defense to shield you from trauma
Memory loss can in fact be a type of healing for the mind to further heal itself

Memory, O memory how human yet divine thou are!
Memory is mystic, spiritual, and strange
Memory is a force; a divinity in its own right
Memory is memory
