THE PAUPER



We would go together to school
On that Rickety Cycle
I might own a Jet one day,doesn't matter
I had the ride of my life already

I would be feeling low,then I'd see her
the mystic smile would appear on my face from nowhere
My mask might keep laughing with you
But I've had my smiles already

I don't know why,but I was made to watch her go
I wept
None of you can peep behind my dry eyes
I've had my share of tears already

And then I saw her again,this time as a stranger
I went Numb
I don't know who lives with you in my disguise
I've embraced my death already

I never asked "Why?" ,but realized I wasn't enough
It felt empty
The devil hunts for my soul,and so do the Gods
But I lost my soul,
Already

I love this, especially the meaning and the contrasts! Can't find the right word but you know what I mean. Try harder, you can be a good poet!:)
