This is an amazing poem and does exactly what it' s meant to do...It's haunting and saddening... Though I like your word choice!

I read the opem before the description, and it was still so powerful and dark on its own before I even knew what it was about. Fantastic poem--putting so much into three lines is a major accomplishment, in my opinion and you've done it beautifully.
