I still don't think 'memories' is correct here. Memories can leave--and how are we certain that the person never wants these memories? But, Pinky led me to another thought here.
A fear is taken without knowlegde. No one ever wants to have their fear (of strange things anyway). A fear is found deep within one's subconscious--so where no one else can ever know unless you share it with them. You can certainly fuel your fear and it will never leave.
