    That’s awful. It’s a emotionally pained groaning.

      @thewirelessblade  I know, right? Hemingway’s story is so simple, yet so powerful and haunting.  It’s like he grabs your attention, sucks you in, and then wham! he gives that startling blow and breaks your heart.                                                       Genius.

      All I remember is this one I’m really proud of from a long time ago. I made like, 17 of these at one point but I can’t find them. xD

      People forget that boys cry too.

      The storms have been her shelter.

      The stars sang for their loss.

      Confidence is key;
      He stuttered again.

      The mentor suspected his unfortunate end.

      Guys, I’ve been trying and trying to come up with one these that is funny. I’ve come to the conclusion that 6 words may not be enough for anything humorous. Someone please prove me wrong. xD

      Oi I’ve been reading all these and I gotta say, @i-david yours is my favorite so far. Before, she hoped; now, she fought. Dang son. That’s pretty good!

      Also @the-fledgling-artist, @dakota said that her mom said: “The cake thief slipped on ice.”

      I do believe that’s the funniest thing I’ve ever read in all my days.

      Good job, Dakota’s mom. xDDD

        Ooh… Let’s see what I can think of…

        He wished for once last chance.

        Shadows blinding, binding, sighing, finding, dying.

        I never wanted this: Not her.

        Like dawn, she made winter beautiful.

          From a dumpster, a baby’s cry.

          (This was inspired by a testimony I heard, where the man was thrown away as a baby by his own mother.  He was rescued by a police officer, and later adopted by godly parents.)

          Great stories everyone!! I really enjoy reading these! Here’s two more I came up with a few days ago:

          She cried, but not with tears.

          “Wait, where’s our last match?!” “Oops.”

          To the glory of God and for the advancement of His kingdom.

          With a breath, she was gone.

          Ooh this looks fun.

          “What are you doing?”
          “Stalking you.”

           

          Everything was fine. Until the explosion.

           

          It appeared overnight. After he left.

           

          “Everything’s purple. Why is it purple???”

          He hated dogs; she did not.

            These are some my family came up with.

            Momma’s apple pie, remembered by all.

            An engagement ring never taken off.

            Twelve years, the empty seat remains.

            I came up with a couple more. (:

             

            Here, the ash rains like snow.

             

            She hoped that hope would come.
