Adrenaline Rush

With a twist of the wrist
I turn the key
Right foot on the gas
Let that six pack breathe

The beast awakens
With a mischievous growl
Drop the clutch in first gear
And hear that Mopar howl

Crusin’ slow
Lookin’ lean
Wheels rollin’
Like a star it gleams

On the radio
The Rock & Roll plays
Taking me back
To select younger days

A direct connection
Between body and machine
That Pistol Grip Shifter
So smooth and clean

I hear the dual exhaust
Music to my ears
Still sounds so great
Even after all these years

Shifting through the gears
Feel that power pull
Being pushed back in the seat
Adrenaline rush on full

My pulse quickens
As the guitars wail
Shift into forth gear
Now I’m haulin’ the mail

DanceOfThePoet'sPen

Guess you could say I'm a self taught poet. I started writing poetry as a means of dealing with the emotions of finding my Birthmother's obituary and grave site after searching for 10 years. I continued writing and over the course of the last 20 years I've become comfortable in how I write. You'll notice I tend to write a lot about nostalgia and old memories. Hey, when you round the corner of 60 years, you start thinking a lot about the past and where you've been. One of my subjects I write about is love, but I try to write of other things too. I've lived on the south shore of Massachusetts for all of my 64 years. But I love all of New England. Aside from writing poetry, I also love photography and have quite a collection of old antique cameras. Baseball, football, muscle cars and car shows are also some of my interests. Not too crazy about Winter. Spring & Summer are my favorite seasons. more…
