How would you go about describing/expressing someone suppressed feelings? I need my characters to think about his suppressed feelings and I want them to share it with my readers. 1)Is it better to use metaphors? 2)Use words such as this He hid his feelings but it was weighed him down considerably.. Or 3)a Solliloquy/inner dialogues? I want to show that my character is aware of his suppressed feelings. He is going through them in his mind.
