I play on the rocky beach. The sharp rocks dig into my feet and I feel pain. I remember the man I met last night. I remember the fuzzy feeling as we drank and laughed. As I pull the front of my dress up his scent overpowers the scent of saltwater and fish. I long to be with him, and feel anxiety for his fate. I wonder if this feeling is love. I am snapped out of my trance as water jumps off  the rocks and splashes my face. I taste salt it is not good tasting, yet tasting is good . A bright star burns furiously. She is too bright too look at, I do anyways. I hear music from a nearby dwelling. The greatest sounds I will ever hear. My borrowed senses have been going crazy since I got here. I do not understand how the natives operate day to day. The pain, disgust and anger. The love, ecstasy, and joy. I fall to my knees and weep human tears as fear, regret and shame overtake me. This is a truly beautiful planet that I have been sent to destroy, but it is too late. Goodbye compassionate world!
