Beauty and the Speed

I see it. There she is.
My car I use to drive.
I miss how I cruised in it.
Her speed made me feel alive.
She did great taking curves.
Her brakes were quick and alert.
I loved how she quickly moved
From 0 to 80 an hour
Within a 2 minute push.
And the way she dropped from 80 to 0 so gently
Gave me a rush.
I never felt so in control
Over something so powering.
It really felt great to experience.
What a nice showering.
What a wish would be,
If I could have her back.
Driving down the highway.
Just a roling that old track.
