You & Me

I saw you today,
But you're not as I remember.
Your eyes no longer sparkle,
You've changed since last September.

You were so full of life,
Yet now you are so cold.
Your personality has tarnished,
When you once had a heart of gold.

You fell out of my life,
Just like leaves in the fall.
We were so very close,
Now you're not here at all.

You saw me today,
I'm the same as you remember.
My eyes still sparkle,
I've not changed since last September.

I like this poem because I like the rhyme scheme and the message that it is telling.

I really enjoyed this poem because it describes past feelings and current feelings and it's something I can relate to.

I love this piece. I can really relate to it and it's awesome. I like how you compared the friend 'falling from your life' like leaves in the fall. Great comparison. I also liked how you used the same stanza at the beginning and the end of the poem except changed the ending words to fit you and how you haven't changed.

Amazing work. Sometimes....you have to see the world through their eyes & maybe you would understand. Amazing Poetry all the same.

I love this. It's short but amazing. This is how I feel, except I'm on the opposite end.
