When you ignore feelings too long, they sink down inside you. They sink into your bones. They calcify, getting harder, and heavier. You can't quite stand up straight anymore. You can't even tell the difference between the things weighing you down and the things holding you up--it all looks the same now. You get lost in yourself, looking for a way to reverse the process--looking for any way to relieve the ache in your back and the strain on your shoulders. Trying to nurse the shell of emotion back to health. But you can't. You waited so long. They pull down on your tired body.

You are not rotting. You are stone.
