My Thoughts about Thieves

He walked in here like he owned the place,
Picked up my words . . . and read them.
He didn't care that they were private,
or unfinished.
Didn't he know that he was stealing . . .
from my mind?
I never said he could share . . . my thoughts.
Sometimes no one is allowed to share my words
They come from inside me
They are a part of me . . . my soul.
I don't need the frustrations,
Of fearing that he's in my head . . .
Stealing my thoughts.
They can't be replaced.
Someone stole my money once . . .
\But I got some more.

Reminds me of this quote of mine.

“Financial wealth without balance,

family and love is just money.”

I like this because the great imagery combined with vagueness let me make the poem my own.

Money stolen can be earned back again, but not for your thoughts. Stand up for your right, Donald!

I really enjoyed it the way you wrote the emotions so that the reader could feel them, as if our thoughts were being stolen. GREAT
