I will admit that this is true, and about me ... but I was inspired to write this little fun poem because I was inspired by Walt's poem about 6 Flags and Sunshine's poem about her merry-go-round. Thanks you two!  I really enjoyed those!      

*~*

Pass The Adrenaline Please!

While most will find me meek and quiet, hiding 'neath a shell,
There lurks a nature, opposite not often, do I tell;
The days roll on, I shuffle by, pretending who I am,
While deep inside, a fire burns, that few may comprehend.

A little quirk of fate I think so quiet and demure,
But give me spring and something hits, and I can't find the cure!
I get an itch, it starts within, then travels through me whole,
Until I have to satisfy that need within my soul.

It's time to dust off running shoes, forsake those workday heels,
And pump some life back into me, by seeking bigger thrills;
I need my yearly fix to quench this thirst to set me free,
A little something that will squash the doldrums out of me.

I have a vice, I'll now confess, it hits me every spring,
I am a ride-fanatic I will do most anything!!!
No ordinary roller-coaster will dissolve my need,
I want the height, I want the fear, the danger and the speed!

I've ridden all the rides that make my hair stand up on end,
From loop-de-loops to upside down, I revel in the bends!
I've sailed upon the ripples of the steepest water flumes,
And left my stomach at the top of "Elevator's Doom".

I've bungy-jumped from tower cranes, I've grinned while falling free,
I've parasailed five hundred feet above the wavy sea;
I simply cannot get enough that rush that powers through,
The one that makes me feel alive, for nothing else will do!

I want the wind across my face, the G-Force in my chest,
The thrill of graceful speed and swiftness putting me to the test;
I need to feel adrenaline, just pumping through my veins,
I want to soar above the clouds, unhindered by constraints!

Perhaps when God created me, he made a small mistake,
On order, was a pair of wings .they just arrived too late!

It's obvious that you like thrills
That much is very clear
But, girl, you haven't lived until
You've tried the Balladeer!!!  


wondeful writing, Kit. You always come up with such great ideas to put into words. Ride on!!!

Kit~
This is soooooo much fun !
Now you've got me caught up in the excitement of it all.

I've para-sailed exhilarated~
Hot Air Ballooned in style~
Glider-Planed 'cross a silent sky~
and loved it all the while.

Give me adventure in great big doses~
Causing my heart to pump~
My next challenge to myself is~
YEP ... a free-fall jump !

*On tap for this summer~
Thank you for sharing your derring-do !
Yep ! ... me too !
*Hugs*

Although I don't share in your adrenalin rush... as far away as I can I stay from such scarey things.....

But its so true, we all portray to be something we are not and have a little something hidden inside.

By the way Kit, thanks for all your encouraging words.

Hugs.. Fee

Expressions,
are the most important aspects, they create impressions
