Numb Hearts

"I... I don't know how to say this, but, I need to be honest with you about the world, Solstice. It's not the place I led you to believe. Sometimes people don't make sense. They don't act rationally. There's not always a definite reason for what people do..."

"You see, everyone around you, is... bleeding. Now, bleeding isn't always bad – bleeding can even be good – but that's not what I'm getting at. Solstice, some people, are.. unlucky. They bleed in all the wrong places. They don't just wake up one day broken, though. Like all big things, they start small. And, I'm not talking about paper cuts. Or bruises. You can see those. No, they bleed on their insides. They bleed so much they start to lose feeling in their toes. And then their fingers. And then their hearts. Their minds get foggy. They don't always make sense. Solstice...

"You're one of those people."

"Your heart is bleeding in all the wrong places. You're sick with love and can't seem to shake it. If I were honest with you sooner, this could've been avoided. But... bumpers were meant to be dented

"People just keep going, though. You're going to keep going. You'll keep at it while your toes get numb. And then your fingers. And then your heart. You'll keeping going until you can't anymore. And–"

"And I think that's beautiful."
