found
his little

hugging
a teddy

he was only

This poem is very powerful. The title makes it even more powerful- I love dark poetry.

Wow, this just blew me away. So sad and the way you wrote it had even greater impact. Still thinking about it and the clinging to Teddy Bear makes it all the more sad. What a poem Bert.
