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 think this poem speaks to alot of people, including me. Sometimes you don't realize things about a person you thought you knew until a large amount of time has passed. It happens.

I can relate to this poem...this guy who I've had a huge crush on since 7th grade used to be the sweetest guy and my sophomore year in HS I hadn't seen much of him at all, Junior year I realized he is now very arrogant and self centered. It breaks my heart. He never used to be like this.
