Not Us

I saw you,
My heart did not beat faster,
I touched you,
It was like hugging a stranger,
I talked with you,
A normal conversation. 

Because it wasn't you. 
The boy I love is gone.

His smile is like any other I see,
His eyes hold no appreciation for me,
His arms are not around my body,
His handsome face is like many.

And you felt nothing for me,
Because I'm not me.
I died when you left,
And you can see I've changed.
Just a shell.

And I am afraid that if you come back,
So will I.
Because I know you will not.

I saw you,
But how could that be,
If you are not you,
And I'm not me?
