They're All Haunting Me

The sky is growing darker,
the cold air bites.
yet the sky lit with laughter,
the air filled with delight.

But for me, Christmas is gone,
It's not the same this year.
Despite all the Christmas magic,
Despite Christmas cheer.

Fake smiles and empty stockings,
an undecorated tree,
New Year's resolutions,
they're all haunting me.

I do like this, but I think the message was left unclear. I'm kind of confused in what you are trying to say. Just tweak the poem a little bit and it would be amazing! Good job thus far(: check out my stuff if you can?
