    Title: Are All These Just "Quik Writes?"

    Are these all just "quik writes?"
    drive-by glances of my thoughts
    wrecklessly swerving trying to hit
    some type, maybe the last nerve of the
    reader...attempting to evoke an emotional
    response one is not fearful to emote

    or are all which appear to be "quik" really
    marinated visions in my pot of "whole" offering
    sacraments to the hungry, questioning soul
    that yearns to digest an escape from reality,
    if only for the moment when stress takes it's toll
    or is it an escape to reality fueled by the
    subconscious necessity for freedom and morality

    Are all these just "quik writes?"
    "quik types?" tapping 'til space bar
    is no longer needed and the universe I have
    created exist on a resoluted page of
    a poetic oasis waiting for someone to
    soak their eyes in the silently spoke...

    (tap tap tap) "A.R.E A.L.L T.H.E.S.E J.U.S.T "Q.U.I.K W.R.I.T.E.S?"

    it only took a minute.....

    for the rhymes to flow sweet
    and the passions to go deep
    just a second for this mind to speak
    just a moment to birth a poetic piece
    but....
    constantly is this mind churning
    day to night this heart burning
    as I gaze on the world ever turning
    I am growing, I am learning
    so....
    when I get filled up to capacity
    irritated at evil's audacity
    I know this ain't how it has to be
    this is when thougths turn into masterpiece

    just a second to scribe it down
    but a lifetime of wisdom's crown...
