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.

You strike with a red hot iron and deliver you point like a seasoned mailman. Well done.

This poem is brillantly written. I love the meter. And I love the way the last stanza mimicks the first. It gives a sense of familarity to it which is a juxtoposition to the friend changing, but it also stays the same which mimicks the way the speaker of the poem stays the same. I love that about it.

I really liked the personification/simile when you said "You fel out of my life just like leaves in the fall" also it created imagery ! :D
