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. Read more about six.

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

I came home now from work

Thank you for what you did.
Sometimes you want to say things but can’t.
In my case, it’s a fatal flaw.
I’m clueless on coyness; always have been.
What I do know, is that I wanted to kiss you, at least once.
I wish I had. Beyond desires of like kind, nothing else
really matters because nothing is more valuable than
what fills your heart. Everything else in life pales
by comparison. I did know that, you reconfirm it for me.
I hope you have a nice ride tomorrow, and the day
is cool and warm, at the same time.
