Have you ever felt really deep feelings for someone, and thought that you knew them; but then found out that they are a total different person than you thought they were?

This poem is about when you've been through a lot of stuff with someone, and suddenly they change. You thought that you knew the person that they were, but you really didn't.

This poem originally was published in Love Poems - Teenage Love Poems

Not There
I stare at you across the room
I see your warming face
I try to see the inside you hide
Your feelings I try to embrace

I realize as I look at you
As I just sit and stare
I can see you perfectly clear
But for some reason you're not there

I see your eyes, I see your face
But yet I can not see
Your loving inside that you had
I can't see your personality

I realize how much that you have changed
How you don't seem to care
I stare at you across the room
But yet you are not there
