Shortest stories & poems with the most impact
« on: March 01, 2009, 12:46:53 AM »
Ok, this topic is to see who can make, or find the shortest story that has the biggest impact on the reader. An example would be:

For Sale: Baby shoes, never worn


Good luck. ;D

No more than 100 words

Quote
Abandonment - A Short Story by Yiazmatslayer

Jim?s wife had ruined it. She had come home and said, ?It?s over between us, there?s someone else?

Jim stood and shouted, ?How could you do this to me?!?

Miranda just looked at him with disgust, and said, ?Because you are a failure, and I do not love you anymore?

Those words crushed him. His life wasn?t worth living anymore. A marriage that consisted of 40 years, thrown away. Almost as easily as a cigarette.

He now sat in his chair, day and night, wondering what had happened. Again he thought, she had ruined it.

That's 95 words.

Like Glass

"Hello!" I say to you as we pass by
Smiling, you respond to me, "Hi!"
We grow close, adapt, we know where we belong
Long and happy we live, not knowing tomorrow,
Tomorrow...
Is the day I search for you, though you are long gone
I wish they you would stop asking
"Wherever did she go?"
Though she sits across from me
Of course they could never know
She had died long ago



SwordStealer is my twin from across the country! ;D
