I write, not because I want to, but because I need to. Otherwise, these flurrying thoughts in my mind won't leave me alone.

This piece was beautifully written. Every stanza shows a phase of distancing and the feelings are all well written. My favourite stanza is number 4, it has happened to me before and I can totally relate to that description of what was happening. An amazing job!
You convey the feeling of longing so effectively in this poem, and the repetition of the words ‘to bid adieu’ show all the different feelings the speaker is feeling when having to say goodbye to their love going off to war, implying this might be his final goodbye. The ending line when you just say ‘To bid adieu’ on it’s own shows the speaker has nothing left to say, like everything is gone just as the word ‘adieu’ implicates in a way.
