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.

a sonnet has 14 lines and the structure is ABABCDCDEFEFGG. i really liked this, but it isn't exactly a sonnet. :) none the less, nice work!

Reminded me of my friend who died last summer of a drug was very sad that such a great person could get sucked into such aweful things.

It was a very touching poem, but some of the words didn't quite flow, in my opinion. The word tarnished, specifically jumped out at me, and it didn't seem to fit. Other than that it was really good!

Thanx for ur opinion
i rly appreciate hearing how pple think whether they like my poem r not
I used the word tarnished because metal tarnishes and gold is a metal n i said "when you once had a heart of gold"
But thanx for ur opinion:)

This poem is just amazing! I can relate to this so much. It's like you are reading my mind. It's awesome how much a poem can really touch you. I read in one of your comments that your goal is to make a difference in people's lives by your writing, and I am pretty sure that you will accomplish that, especially from this poem! Your word choice was really great!

Poetry is not simple, quite bewildering. Continue to try and be apprehensive of your thoughts.

I can completely relate to this. I miss my friend dearly since he moved. But he's changed. This poem has summed up pretty much whole relationship with since he moved. Truly wonderful.
