buckle up ladies and gents: it’s life in the fast lane
this is what we signed up for all those years ago
when we swore off serious relationships and being anchored down.
and, oh how good it feels now
to float along on a cold winter’s breeze.
suck in a deep breath of freedom
and let it flow through our bodies
until it exits out the ends of our toes
who in their right mind would give this up?
the absolutely intoxicating way the world
around you seems to be tinted amber and pink
as it flies by outside your car window
nothing can compare to it,
and I’ve given up trying to settle
for anything less than this exhilarating freedom.
