I Just Want to Write! by Until

I just want to write...
Grammatically incorrect
Grammatically correct
Have a cause and an effect

I just want to write...
Insert my soul in my pen
Smoothly ooze ink from my pen
Again and again
Share secrets with my paper
Pen and Paper are my two best-friends

I just want to write...
Capture my emotions within
Confess all of my sins
In many ways and many styles
Whether I write in a calmly or Chaotic fashion
Stand out and/or like Hennessey "Never Blend In"

I just want to write...
With enticement, with excitement
Whether I measure up to have poetry
And/or just literary license

I just want to write...
To touch and to soothe
To write is to ooze
All of my feelings
However I want to

I just want to write...
So when you read my book, enjoy it
Don't criticize or try
To size me up through the old/new
Great poets eyes

I write for me
I write for those who can see
That old and/or new
Newly inserted or deleted rules
Doesn't matter to me, honestly
I write poetry because... I just want to write

Books by Until

Hard bounded and paper back
Books, books, books and more books

Gracing the wooden shelves beautifully

Displayed for your eyes to gaze and look

At the categories by the masses
Titles imaginatively vary

Awaiting you, to be bought, perused, admired and used
at the bookstore, cafe, online and especially the library


Coca Cola by Until...

"Coca Cola is my favorite soft drink. This is my way of celebrating the taste!" ~ Until...

It feels nice-cold in hand
Dripping with water drops
Can't wait to pop the top

And let the friendly bubbles jump out to greet my nose

while at the same time tickle my lips
As I anxiously take a sip

Of this chocolate brown substance with acidic greatness
To titillate my taste buds and arouse my tongue and throat

Gulp, Gulp, Gulp...

What? It's all gone?

Aw man. I need another coke!


Impact by Until

"A snippet from my poem Impact" ~ Until...

You are insanely missed
No longer does my world encounter bliss
That you once provided me with

An impact so great

That it left me only to dream and wish
For you to reappear and once again exist


In my intimate scenes, just you and I


On Guard by Until...

My life is so conflicted
Sometimes do to self infliction
And making bad decisions
Turns out to be great mistakes

Now I got to start all over again
Confused and don't know where to begin
Trying to tie up my lose ends
I want a clean slate

Life is long with many hurtles
Don't know if I'm the rabbit or the turtle
My life needs to be in a new position
So that I can move forward with my dreams and missions
Yes, I'm on my way

My life lessons keep me humble
Because I often make many fumbles
I need strength so I won't crumble
Because life is so hard

Now I can say my eyes have wisdom
I've gotten adolescence out of my system
I'm a solution cause I've fixed them
Now I'm on guard


Peace by Until...

I crave intimacy, I desire ecstasy
I need sensuality to help me breathe

To me live and feel free and flirt with mother nature
The way a real lady wants to be
The way a real lady should be

Play in a circle of birds
and dance with a string of butterflies
Wipe the tears of joy from my eyes
As I feed the fishes in the sea

It's important to be me and be allowed to be me
And people accept who they see, accept who I be
The laughable young lady
Well mannered, fun, vibrant and joyously happy with jolly

I indulge in life, embrace the good, as well as the bad
Endure the pain as If I never even once had

Felt pain, sorrow with rain
But I continue to live and keep the best of me
Not allow anyone to take my soul
Or mental happiness from me

I am now learning that it doesn't pay to be
upset or hold things within because sooner or later
it catches up with you and you leave this earth
thats how and why my brother left me

Whenever my problems occur I take a minute
to realize that they could cause me a slow death
So I look into the sky and asked to be once again blessed
with HIS concern to take care of this mess and I leave my burdens with HIM and I don't even second guess;

That the situation will not be taken care of
While I will continue to praise the LORD
Thank HIM with love

I'm all over the place with my thoughts like a curve
My life is a journey and my thoughts represent every word

I think about one thing until the next
What would life be like if language
couldn't be converted to text

But all of my thoughts seem to go right back to the first
My cravings, my desire, my need to be free
Play in a circle of birds, dance with a string of butterflies
Feed the fishes in the sea

This is all we should be worried about--instead of destruction
War along with death, mourning over the deceased

Life should be beautiful, immortalized and eternally free
Dreams of positivity, goals of productivity
A life that over all manifest peace.


Wherever it may... by Until...

I'm inspired by fresh air
The softness of my own hair

The moles that are now appearing in their rightful place upon my face.

The changes every couple of years that my body, mind and soul seems to make.

The desires, the dreams and ambitions that magically appear in my heart and mind

The many hats that I seem to be given by life which pertains to the varied roles on a daily I play.

The many dimensions of me that I am and others think I portray.
The words that come out of my mouth or that I write down to inspire myself and others to say:

"You've helped me, you've inspired me to do my own thing an walk my own way."

The visions at any moment and anytime of day,
on the screen of my mind that microfiches on display

I'm inspired by the positive and negative flows of life, wherever it may... lead me.
