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 can relate to this poem so much. One of my best friends has changed so much, I don't even think we relate anymore.

I dislike it when my friends change for the worse. ]: Totally relatable sonnet! Nice job!

Whats good about this poem is that it will always be true, like much of Shakespeare's work. Although like his, it's not in Shakespearean Sonnet form, or any other form I am aware of. With that said, I think this poem is great and the rhyming that it does have is perfect. Personally, I am not a fan of poems that every line rhymes somewhere; I like ones where there is a little rhyme here and there, giving it a definite song sense. Overalll, a job well done.

This poem was really good and I feel relevant as well. I really do feel as if it describes my relationship with some people. Really Good :)

This is great, but the structure is wrong for a sonnet. I love the message, though.

I know exactly what you mean. With my exboyfriend, and my best friend it's exactly the same way. I can't stand it, and it makes me sad. It makes me remember the really good days we had together and how they used to act. I wish they still acted that way. I wish they were still the people I knew and loved.

This is a wonderful poem. I agree with wat you are saying but i also take from it something else. I am also seeing it not as a friend, but like if you had an old boyfriend or girlfriend, and things have changed. THank you!

I can totally relate to this. It's the same case as going back to school after summer's over and your friends act like they don't even know you ar want to be near you anymore. Great piece of work! Keep on writing!
