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.

Very relatable, and I love the transition from points of view, has a good flow to it, and a nice topic. I really like it a lot :)

I like that you wrote a poem that relates to everyday teenage lives. We all know of somebody who has changed and you always look back at how they used to be and when you write about something that people can relate to it's a lot more enjoyable and more readers will listen. This is a simple, and beautiful poem.
