6 word stories.

This was an assignment in la. "In the next 20 minutes write a story that has only six words."

I wrote 16 of them...

Under the moon, dance with me.

Into the fire, dive to death.

Walk on water, feel the impossible.

Pull me closer, kiss me softly.

Run so quickly, grab the knife!

My tears fall, it drags across.

Correcting the wrong, is always right.

In the silence, I drown myself.

Hold me close, kiss me now.

No-one will know, all my fears.

I am scared, please save me.

Need a hero, save me now!

Under the night, scream so right.

Scream for you, come so true.

Glance at silver, feel the pain.

Open a book, lose your all.

We did this in my English 10

We did this in my English 10 class. All I could come up with was: "I don't watch people whilst lifeguarding". I felt immensely bad, but, whatever...

They're so poetic! And every one with a caesura between the third and fourth words....

It's like a comma.... only

It's like a comma.... only in poetry... and I don't think it necessarily has to be a comma. I think any punctuated pause within a line of poetry counts as a caesura, whether it be a comma, a semicolon, a full stop, whatever. Yours were all commas. But they weren't just commas, they were poetic commas, thus, caesuras.

Could it be? I'm in

Could it be? I'm in love?

Your presense brings me joy.

Your touch, so sweet. I melt.

Sadness. When I don't see you.

The sky, so wondrous. My hearts sings.

You're so beautiful, you made me forget my pick up line. ;)
