Illogical Thoughts of a Woman in Blue
Truly this is a man to be admired.
An accomplished scientist,
His records are required reading at Starfleet.
Why do I experience a feeling of distrust,
When I think of him?
Surely she loves him.
Her face, when she heard his voice,
Like an exploding star.
It is admirable that she did not give up hope,
After long years of waiting.
So now he is found.
And they shall be together.
Illogical that this should disturb me.
Something is wrong.
I have spoken with the Captain,
And he called me a name he would never say.
I must beam down,
If only to reassure myself
That they are both all right.
It is over now.
Korby is truly gone,
'Though he was never really there.
Jim explained it to me
And I find it regrettable that such a mind was lost.
There was much knowledge
To be learned there.
Yet ultimately, it was his own choice.
Why do I find myself pleased?
I cannot forget the pain in her eyes;
The sorrow and emptiness still there
As she talks to the Captain.
She is staying with the ship
And that is good,
For she is a most efficient crewmember.
That I find myself content
Knowing she will remain.
