Because the longer you don’t say something the greater it becomes. Growing in size daily and morphing into a terrible burden upon your heart and mind. It begins to weigh on everything else you do say and laces itself in your conversations, a silent murmur that lies beneath the audible, only detectable by the pulse it sends to the heart. Yet we wait and we wait and we wait to say things because we’re scared, we’re cowardly, we’re nervous, we’re shy, we’re embarrassed. So we create secret giants that live within us, yearning to break free and the longer we live with them the more we lose ourselves amongst them. Shrinking evermore beside the growing beasts.
