project thing-a-day: 6. some six-word stories

I remembered that a thing is just a thing and it doesn't have to be a cohesive story every time, just as sporadic and speckled a collection of words and/or images as I like. And I do like. So here are some six-(or-so-)word stories about my life right now. I like some of them better than others but they are all things and all silly and unlasting and I can't believe I'm writing some of them down at all and they are all gutwrenchingly true.


Frostbitten, but afraid of the fire.


I'd rather be frozen than this.


I don't deserve those soft eyes.


I wanted to touch your hair.


My eyes skip around the words.


I promised I would help her.


Why can't I learn to feed myself?


In love, despite my best efforts.
