A Great Notion

Sometimes a great notion,
Overflows me like an ocean.
Puts my mind in motion,
Toward which I steer.

Soon that first small token,
Grows though unspoken,
Until the spell is broken,
And the goal draws near.

And then the rules are changed,
My comfort gets rearranged,
I am on my own, estranged.
And meet my greatest fear.

The great wheel of emotion,
Spins my mind like potion.
Until that once great notion,
I once held so dear.

Is dashed upon the rocks of reason,
Trammeled by the tracks of treason,
Puddled into pretty poison,
While I stand by so clear.

To pick up the pieces shattered,
Of all that ever mattered,
And piece together tattered.
The notion of the year.

I'm normally not one for rhyme but i did enjoy your style. You have a unique essential beat behind your writing far better than the usual

Aawww, god, I hate when that happens!! So many lost Notions, for lack of time or pen or diverseness of life, getting in the way, sending mind into the "ugh, that sucks, toss it out"'s. The rhthym was cool, keeping the flow going, just a "right" feeling piece, Ron!
