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.

Wow. Dont let anyone say poems have to be long. This is a great poem and u used a lot of good literature. and yes it is very sad. Especially if it is someone you love or a family member or an ex.

Oh I so agree! Some of the smaller poems on this site are the best...I think you sometimes lose the magic in a poem with too much length...but this truly is a great poem!

I LOVE THIS! It's so well written, I'm jealous! You just completely blew me away with the adjectives, the rhythm and the rhymes. I am in awe. But yeah, that is sad, when that happens to a friend, or anybody, really.
