Eat healthy. Excersize daily. Die anyway.

Glistening in the sunlight
Or of what little chrome it has,
And its paint shining so bright

The rust is what makes it so unique
The dents and dings,
Just like when people call me a geek

As some say it needs some work
I say it’s perfect,
Like a piece of Picasso artwork

It may not be able to drive yet
But oh well,
It will someday, I’d be willing to bet

Of the billions of pictures I took
None can truly capture the beauty,
Even if I take a second look

Just the feeling of sitting in the driver’s seat
Makes me feel so alive,
The feeling is oh so sweet

Just knowing that it’s mine
It will be done,
In time

I own a 1978 Z28 Camaro and it has inspired me to write this poem.

I like your comparisions (sp?) to artwork that you use to describe your car and how you describe sitting in the driver's seat. Very nice! I also like how I didn't notice that it rhymed until I started critiquing it. (poems that rhyme are hard for me to read)

Favorite Quote: word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love....I love...I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on. -Mr. Darcy

Wow - this is fantastic!  The imagery is well done and beautiful, and I especially like how you compared yourself to the car - that was so cool!
