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.

you want to be his wife

by EnMasse on April 18, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

she heard the whisper in her mind
was it a question?
her eyes now open wide
puzzlement buzzed like a bee
did someone speak?
could it be her heart grew a tongue
and sultry lips?
now come they both to bring her news
this golden thought,
plucked from the garden hidden in her heart
she replies out loud in her soft tone
her drowsy eyes on the sky
yes, I want to be his wife
yes, I want to be his wife
yes, I want to be his wife
