A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here and on SmithTeens. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

We can be each other's radiator.

an old recording from an old apartment. webcam quality. anyhoo. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB9aj3P5fnk&feature=youtu.be


cold front's coming in
see all the people scatter
to find some place warm
cold front's coming in
and with it came the clatter
of knocking on my door

i opened and to my surprise
standing in the cold was
my whole new life

you said to me
well, baby,
could i stand next to your radiator?
it's cold outside
but if i could, i'd like
to stand next to your radiator

cold front's coming in
see all the people scatter
to find some place warm
cold front's coming in
it really doesn't matter
i'm in your arms

you hold me oh so close tonight
it starts to snow but
here inside

i don't have much
to give you, but
you can stand next to my radiator
you can warm your feet
beside me
you can stand next to my radiator

and now you snuggle near
and i'm so glad that you are here

i don't have much
to give you, but
you can stand next to my radiator
you can stand by me,
well, baby,
you can stand next to my radiator
