In a place inside my mind
Behind lock and key and bar
Is a room in which resides
Ideas both near and far

Occasionally an idea or two
Will filter through the cracks
I’ll leap upon the select few
And never give them back

I have a theory that, at nighttime
When you’re lying, half asleep
The iron bars that hold and bind
Allow a tiny peep

So a shimmering gem will burst forth
From that shining fabled room
I record it as appropriate course
Then hope more are coming soon

Imagine if I held the key
To unlock that magic door
I would enter with no plans to leave
Into that which would come tumbling forth

I really like this. I think that everybody must have a special "room" in their head that their ideas come from. very creative way  of thinking. keep up the good work.

Again, a really interesting topic! I love thinking about where my thoughts come from, and this was a great poem to read. It was simple, which worked because your ideas came through very clearly. I also like the idea of how thoughts come trickling through. Very cool!
