Mr. Bobby Useless on The Moon

You do feel stupid, shouting this at the space, right? No one can hear you, no matter how hard you scream. Sadly, shouting this at her would be the same thing, you’ve lost your chance, Bobby.
Oh, sad astronaut. Those light years from your love to her heart made quite a difference. The crash course was already set, but i know, the way from A to B was the closest you’ve had from a passion.

Or will you cut it off, in order to minimize the damage while you have time? You can see it right there, your mermaid floating in the sky, and her tears, if she does drop one or two — who knows — those will be the salt in your wounds, and you’ll have to live with it.
