We are talking again,
But it still isn't the same.
I wish it was,
But I know it won't be.
It never really will be the same,
Will it?

I want you to be that guy.
I want you to be the old you.
The guy that I loved to spend time with,
But you aren't anymore.
You never will be.
Will you?

I'm leaving soon, but you are already gone.
You are a different person now.
You talk to me, but our banter is different.
We joke around, but the jokes aren't funny.
I'm not going to see that guy again,
Am I?

This is about one of my closest friends, who over the course of a few months has become a completely new person.
