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.

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.

I really like what you had to say about your friend it was very moving in a lot of ways. I think you should keep up the good work and never back down on what you want in life.

I can relate to this. I had a boyfriend, and we were so close. We were sometimes best friends rather than boyfriend and girlfriend. He used to talk to me every chance he got, and his eyes did too sparkle. I broke up with him over the summer (long story). Last year, on my birthday, I was showered with gifts and his presence. This year, I never received a "happy birthday" or even a smile.

That's awesome!! It's kind of sad though, I can relate. I think it's so sad when things like that happen.
