THOUGHTS

Untitled #2

i am still shaking.
we are still breathless.
from the roller coaster ride.

the slithering twists and turns.
the sudden climbs and thrilling dives.
the slowing down and speeding up.
like tango dips and bungee jumps.
the increasing crescendo in our chests,
as it takes us upside down then back again.
the hard, fighting feeling to yell, scream or gasp.
the world goes by, in blurring images, past.

in a moment, the ride grinds to a halt,
leaving us stirred and exhilirated.
to this ride still somewhat fixated.
‘get off or one more?’, our eyes ask each other.
then it begins once more, seemingly slower than ever.
yet we find ourselves on it, over and over.

i am still shaking.
we are still breathless.
from the roller coaster ride.

One thought on “THOUGHTS

  1. so are u going for one more ride?as for me, i feel contented just watching ppl scream, laugh and cry as they ride the rollercoaster. i’ll prolly buy a stick of cotton candy on a nearby sweets stand…no more rollercoasters for me. i’ll just listen to your stories.
