The Ride

Steep anticipation climaxed in a wild thrill.
A comforting turn quickly followed.

You could see,
even then,
the ride would keep going.

G-force yanked from you
another excited squee
as you were helplessly pulled
up and down
and side-to-side.

You raised your hands
in reckless abandon,
surrendered to momentum.

Just as you were feeling comfortable
wishing this joy would never end
you were slammed to a sudden halt
as the ride came to a full and complete stop.

On your way out
you were invited to get back in line
behind a bunch of eager suitors
for a chance to do it all again
once others were given opportunity
to ride.
