Bottle it up. Try and push it to the depths of consciousness.
Some things just do not lend well to talking about, especially when conjured from out of the blue. It is a foreign feeling that plagues the mind. You want to ask someone to hold you, but how can you ask when you feel weak for doing so? Profound weight presses down on your shoulders and grounds you at the time where you want to float away. Stuck. You are stuck. Stuck in the moment you heard. Stuck in the feeling of fear. Stuck with worry. Stuck with the burden of silently carrying what you know. You cannot forget this. It is part of you now. Worry. Fear. Sadness.
My lips are pressed together in a fake smile as I go about my day. My tongue is heavy with words that are hard to say. No matter how hard I try, I cannot speak about this. Most things are easier for me to verbalize but this is one of those things that is not mine to tell. It is not mine to feel fear over and crying would only make me look juvenile. It is not about me and I doubt expressing how I feel would earn me anything but annoyance. I could really use a hug right now, or some form of comfort, but I cannot bring myself to ask for it.
