I wonder if you've noticed
The colors in your eyes,
Once such vibrant blue and gold
Now resemble greyer skies

The lights which used to dance within
Have faded over time
Your once familiar smile
Now a gruesome pantomime

So now we stand as strangers
And although I search your face
The person I remember
Is gone, without a trace

You're just a lifeless doll
A broken, empty shell
Another soulless wanderer
With a story you can't tell

everyone has those sad and disappointed moments, the important fact is, don't allow them to dictate who you are.  

Great truth and poem.

Sad to witness one so broken and empty.
Even more so when it's someone we love.

Very nice to read you...
