Without a hand to hold

We used to be friends, now where are we?
We would cry together, be shy together,
Now where are we?
The smile vanished from your face
And disappeared without a trace.

Now what we had is gone.
You left me alone
In the darkest of places.
Without a hand to hold.

It's really great and relatable. But it did seem to cut off suddenly... Maybe you could beef it up a little or add a little more length. Great work!

I was meant to submit this to the Hot Topics area. I didn't submit, with all the nice comments... what should  I do?

This poem is very close to me and my experiences also. I am a fan of poems with a dark side, and this ending is done very well:)
