The Moon

Sep 27, 2019

I am hopelessly in love… Ever since I met her all these years ago… She was actually the first thing I have seen once I formed… You see, back in the day, some rude boulder smashed into my beloved with such a force that I was created… She’s a part of me… I wouldn’t be here without her… I follow her from that time and I will keep on doing that forever… There is nothing that can change it… I have to keep my eyes on her… I am terrified to turn the other way because I am afraid she will disappear… You would say that after millions of years I would get bored, but the opposite is true… I love her more and more… And I think she’s growing warmer to me too… She used to make just quick glances at me, but the more she gets to know me, the longer she looks at me… I am sure that one day, she won’t turn away anymore… We will lock our eyes and live in that moment forever… She keeps saying that I am like a son to her… But she will change her mind, I am sure… I can feel her oceans being drawn to me every day… I can feel her being drawn to me… I admire her… She is so selfless… She loves her miserable little creatures… I think they are insignificant, but what can I do, she loves them… I think that’s the way to her heart… The creatures… So I pretended to be really excited and happy when they flooded me with their little satellites and lunar modules and what not, even when they came personally. I pretended it’s the best thing that ever happened to me… I know that I had to show her I am capable of love for her creatures… So I did… She was really excited… We talked for years with a new life added to the conversation… literally… When the insects stopped coming I secretly rejoiced, but to her I acted like it was the worst thing that ever happened to me… She bought it… I still pretend to sob sometimes because she just can’t help herself and wants to make it all better… I know it’s not a nice thing to pretend to make someone like you, but she would never talk to me again if she knew the truth… I cannot let that happen… And I won’t… She wouldn’t say it out loud, but I know she’s afraid of losing her precious little humans… And I also know it will happen soon… I heard her saying that her humans want to pay visit to her brother… To establish a colony… She doesn’t want to admit it to herself, but I think somewhere in her core she knows they do this to leave her… She will be crushed… She will need someone to make her feel better… Someone like me… And that’s why I will help humans as much as I can to send them on their merry way… Begone you filthy scum that only exploits my beloved… The sooner, the better… And then we’ll spend the rest of our lives in loving embrace…
