Before We Fell Asleep..by Michael

A Story by Michael Reisman

It was soft and cuddly. Big round ears and sparkling
Brown eyes made me smile as we hugged and slept together.
Not an imaginary friend, but a real life childhood toy
That would listen to me without question.
One brown eye would wink at me before we fell asleep together.
My name is Theresa and I am six years old. Dolls never fascinated me,
Yet my teddy bear always did. His furry arms would
Always be around me when I woke up in the morning.
He was something that was saved as a child and kept with me
All through my adult years. My Teddy forever.
I introduced my new boyfriend who I met at my
Senior year in college to my parents. They were impressed and
Liked him just as much as I did. His name was Teddy and four
years later we eventually got married. One brown eye would
Wink at me before we fell asleep together....

That's cool. I love the power you pull out of so few words. Also, cool visual symmetry, the winking eyes. I don't see anything really to criticize. I guess, If you just want to see how spare you can go without losing the story's impact you could pare down the end a bit, but that's really just messing with nuts and bolts for fun. Cool little story.
