Kinda a prelude to "Keeping It Honest." Sometimes in life living it as a robot is better than experiencing the pain OF life.

The Android's Regret 


When I'm not with you 

I feel like half of me is missing. 

I'm not whole, complete. 

I'm an empty shell waiting to fall. 


When I'm with you 

I'm on top of the world. 

I feel carefree and light as a feather. 

I could conquer the world. 


When I'm coming to see you 

I feel this overwhelming excitement. 

I can't get there fast enough. 

Time crawls at a snail's pace. 


When I leave you 

I feel like I loved on borrowed time. 

Like it was special only to me. 

You bided your time until you could escape. 


Nothing is the way it was. 

I'm not upset about that. 

What worries me is something more. 

Something I can't deal with. 


You make it seem like 

there's nothing you want from me. 

Like our time has come and gone. 

I'm a “thing” of the past. 


You fail to understand one key fact. 

I'm a person with feelings and emotions. 

You took the robot and made her human. 

There are times now when I wish you hadn't.
