Data Not Commonly Known

Neil never came back.
What is she supposed to do now? Dust?
She can't--
the task seems too monumental, 
and with him gone, who cares anyway?

He came out of the blue, fell from the sky,
a knight in shining armor.
She should've known he'd have a wife.

He went home to get some things
in 1969.
Now, here she is alone--
losing her mind,

getting older,
and wearing his stupid flag around her face
like a wedding veil.

Never trust anyone who falls out of the sky, especially if they have armor. What a song that is!

Thank goodness for comments. I didn't get this until I read the comments:~( Sorry, but I DID enjoy reading it out loud. NOW, of course it makes perfect sense. Sometimes I feel like such an idiot!

Hope things are going well with you. Give my best to Skittles.
