On paper I am perfect,
On paper I am fine
On paper I see everything,
All that is mine
But paper gets worn down,
Paper tears with time
The ink will slowly fade away,
The words will slowly die
Paper tells a story,
which can often be a lie
It's dogged ears can hide the truth,
It's cuts can make you cry
But paper wont match reality,
However hard I try

The ink will slowly fade away,
Maybe it's my time.

    Your form is Rhyme, yet paper does seem to have the ability to last longer than we do? Light & Love

    I like the effects of this poem Devin, as if the words are revealed on paper but a life well lived is the words we speak to one another, luv vie
