Thoughts

An idea that comes to mind,

An expression of your feelings.

Can be mean or can be kind,

Or exceptionally revealing.

A quiet secret in your heart,

A perceptible emotion.

Pops in your mind from the start,

Causing much explosive commotion.

A unique process of the brain,

Reacting in much confusion.

Sometimes ends in heavy pain,

Or amounts of complex delusion.

There is a story told by thoughts,

Open seas of flowing knowledge.

Of people's dreams tied in knots,

To create an immense dream collage.

They say a mind's a complex place,

Where all your ideas are brought.

A huge layered thinking base,

Notions conceived by resolute grace,

To start a colossal train of thought.
