I wanna ride

I wanna ride once more

On the lost highway I so loved;


I wanna ride talking to the wind,

My hair flying loose;


I wanna ride with no cares in the world,

My pony taking the lead;


I wanna ride losing myself,

Away, away from the world;


I wanna ride with a feeling of everlasting bliss,

As if I never saw pain before;


I wanna ride with the blood coursing through me,

As if there would be no tomorrow;


I wanna ride away from all my shackles,

Be liberated, if only for a day.


Note: 1) This is my take on the prompt for the week at Writer’s Island – The Lost Highway.

2) With this post, Uniquely Priya achieves a li’l milestone of 200 posts. 🙂

    well, i am greedy too. i meant that ‘one day’ figuratively, as in for a short period, meaning that we have to come back to the world at the end of the blissful ride. 😀

    Hey, good one!
    I love those days …. when days where filled with dreams and creativity.

  8. Nice one, Priya. Good visualization. Exactly how I have been feeling for the last few fays. The only difference is I posted lamenting about it, while you have a way with optimistic imagination 🙂 How I wish I had such a day….

  9. For “Uniquely Priya” 🙂

    ~ Much love, Nith
