The Pawnbroker

And here I am,
Of Flesh, blood and bones,
Mind - No, that is locked with the pawnbroker
who,Some say is ethereal
I only know that he lives above the real.
Never mind, but He has what I owe to all.
In my last conversation with Him,
(More an argument if I am to believe)
He levied a heavy interest,
And I had to give away some memories as a fee.
Indeed a hard bargainer
is He-
I have heard some old folks say this.
Now I know;
My Mind, Oh! Yes, My Mind is with Him you see.
Few more years,
My Mind - hope I shall get back from Him,
But not all memories shall I give away
only for my Mind's interest and fee!
Some I shall hold to relish and set my soul free.
