Unrequited

 

Raven
    
"Nevermore," her heart whispered in silence.


Static
    
It hurt to be near him.
Foam
    
She washed out to the sea.


Siamese
    
Being alone just wasn't an option.


Mirror
    
She saw her pain in his eyes.
Blind
    
His gaze never fell on her.


Forsaken
    
The misery wasn't worth the misery.


Stockade
    
They dwelled together in their loneliness.

A love-theme for Valentine's Day. A bit cynical, I supposed, but I can understand the pain people feel when they don't have someone special in their life and they choose to celebrate this day as "Vampire's Day" instead. A couple of these are straight-forward, though most have a twist and are open to interpretation -- which is what a good 6-word story should be.

Just a note on the first story. I pulled this concept from a micro-fiction I wrote. I don't think it's plagiarism if you steal from yourself.
