A Young Mans Dream

When I was barely a teen
I heard a rock-n-roll singer sing,
Something about a sweet and fast little thing -
Said she was the finest thing he'd ever seen
A real smooth movin' machine,
Prettier than a silver-dream -
Said she was oh so right
Both day and night,
And well worth a fight -
I listened close, ears wide open
Found myself longing and hoping,
My heart beat really stroking -
I was so young way back then
Couldn't truly comprehend
This wonder that really moves most men -
But ofcourse I grew
And became a young man too,
Learned my lessons, paid my dues -
Then came that incredible day
When desire fulfilled came my way...
Boys listen, for I am here to say:
No price is too high, no distance too far,
To find and to have that beautiful star -
No, I'm not talkin' 'bout a woman...
My first love, was ofcourse a car!

Great poem Smoky. Enjoyed this one a lot.
I can really relate to this, my first love was a guitar, she was a gibson, so beautiful to play. Sadly she got stolen many years ago, I bet she still plays like a dream. A fantastic poem.
Smoky- I was expecting another kind of fast, sexy number, all the way through. Let me say, you are getting your rhyming patterns down to a fine art. Really enjoyed this lok back
