There is a spring in the starter that should cause it to disengage after the electricity is removed. Double check that the electricity is removed form the starter side of the solenoid, cause that is the easiest thing to check first. Then take the starter off and have it checked for free at your local auto store. If it seems OK to them it may be the starter is not the right one for the bell housing. If it sticks in to far, the starter gear may be stuck partly in the flywheel.

Most likely you need a new Ignition switch. The small "tickler" wires on your solenoid are staying on. You can disconnect the small wire from the Solenoid and then put a test light on it. Turn the Ignition to Start and see if the wire stays hot when you release the key.
Another problem you could have is the Starter has such a bad intermittent short in it, that it keeps the points welded together after the key is released from the Start position. You can get a starter Draw test done at some parts stores like Autozone or Oreillys to name a few, they do it free and on the truck.
Let me know the result please,

There are two cables to the starter. one -, one +, both of these come directly from the battery. The + goes to solenoid on one side then from the other side to the starter. If you have the solenoid on the wheel well. The - goes to the block any where you want, but usually on the bolt that holds the starter on. If you have he starter with the solenoid on it then the+ goes to it. Also on the solenoid there is a smaller wire that is the ignition wire from the ignition switch
