I wrote this two years ago, can't really remembered what compelled me to. and that I wanna chide and laugh at myself for feeling so fornlorn then. this must be the sign that the emotional wound is healed.

minus one.

Stillness descends
the grieving skies,
as you no longer gaze at
beside me.

Evening passes quickly
into the stoic night
as I receive its approach
with open arms
that fall
to my sides.

Shadows are my companions -
they sing as I dance
and dance as I sing.

But alone,
shall I weep.

  Yeah, apart from that line. this is pure sadness. I love the second stanza :

"Evening passes quickly
into the stoic night
as I receive its approach
with open arms
that fall
to my sides."

That is such a forlorn picture of dejection!
You ended it well, not even the shadows can help you weep. Excellent poem! and I'm glad you got over it.
Be happy

  I agree with Ed about changing the one line, he just beat me to it. Maybe just eliminating the first word would make it a little more even. Duh, look at that, he already gave you that suggestion. Great minds think alike (lol)
I felt this poem was quite solid and it was an enjoyable read.

  Hey, don't be so hard on yourself, at the time that's how you felt. Yes, one can feel the sad,undertones of your loneiness, to what level,only you can truly know. I like the title as well.

My only suggestion for this would be to change the word that to as, in this line:

that you no longer gaze at

Good write
