SIX WORDS, NO more, no less. Shrunken stories shrivelled into a mere six words of the English language looking to tell a tale without so much as a paragraph (not to mention keeping me sharp on my roman numerals). Read away dear visitors, read away:

Burnt love letters. The loneliest smoke.

Cracked crockery. Domestic abuse for desert.

Addicts need you, you’re someones rehab.

…“dust, to dust.”
I heard something!

One punch. Hospitalised. Boxing still. Still.

Parent’s drove away, from Holloway Orphanage.

  1. Somehow the first two got me thinking: “Burnt! Love letters in the desert.”
    But now that you’ve corrected it . . . .

  2. Loved that last one… really carries weight. Maybe as follow up.

    Casket weighed with scent of lilies.

  3. The first one about burnt lovers letters -Great

  4. I like the first one, the second phrase almost sounds like a cigarette advert punchline.
    In the second offering did you mean ‘desert’ or ‘dessert’?

    1. The delicious dry grainy pudding of course…sand. haha i need to fix that typo.

  5. I do love the first one. It sent such imagery to me when I read it. A single figure watching the letters turning into ash, the memories into wisps of smoke. Beautiful in a heartbreaking way 😦

    Aww, that last one made me sad…but then I thought, oh, it could be happy too. 🙂

    1. Thanks for the read 🙂
      And I quite liked that one, could be the best of times or the worst.

Please, type what you think
