And what do you do with happiness stolen? Certainly not what I have done. Do not make it a part of you, do not let it touch your secret places.

Listen, this happiness you have stolen is like the sun. It is sweet on its edges, like warm icing, but the closer you get the more it burns, the more it melts into you.

But it's not yours to keep. That euphoria of being one with a star gives way to panic when that sun begins to set, when it falls away and drags pieces of you with it.

You think you are so clever. You think you know better. You think you can just let it run through your fingers, that letting it go is as simple as pulling your hand away.

Listen. You are Icarus, and you cannot undo what you have done.
