Near You

You have pushed me
pulled me
moved me from the staid
to the exciting.
Watching
my head thrown back
hair tossed by the wind
I wrap my legs around your waist
my screams of delight
echo in your ear.
Never have I felt so alive
never so connected
as I do with you.
Those who do not understand
watch as we speed by
uncertain what to say.
joyous
happy
all this and more
is felt when I am near you.
