Six Word Story #189

Six Word Story:

Deep breath. Eyes closed. Mouth shut.


I have no idea. I genuinely have no idea what this six word story is about. Or why I decided to write it. I am assuming that I was inspired by something I read or watched. Maybe a movie I saw. I don’t know. What do you think this SWS is about? Let me know in the comments.

As I mentioned earlier, I am going to be posting drafts for most of this week because I am recovering from a nasty flu. To be honest, it’s not the worst flu I’ve ever had. But I haven’t been sick in so long it has really taken me down. I have been feeling awful for the last few days. I think yesterday was the worst. But I slept for like ten hours and now I’m feeling slightly better. I have more energy today but my throat is still hurting like a lot.

    1. Ooh very interesting. That may actually be it because I watched a horror movie a little like that and that may have inspired the six word story.

  1. Deep breath, eyes close , mouth shut. That’s totally what pranayama is about 😛.
    Hey Pooja, please take care. Sending you some positive vibes. I hope you recover well. Please don’t stress. 💐

  2. The thing about SWS is that it is open to so many interpretations. This can be someone who’s meditating or even someone who is on survival mode. I hope you’ll feel better soon.

  3. I think it’s about going into water. You take a deep breath, close your eyes (I think), and your mouth.

    Glad to hear you’re a bit better!

      1. It’s like being kicked when you’re down. You do all the right things to take care of yourself and it seems like nothing works.
        I’ll keep you in my thoughts. Feel better. ❤️

  4. First the SWS reminds me of meditation process then it also brings the nostalgia we face in this toxic society where one could ended up taking a deep breath with eyes closed and mouth shut. Kind of looking for escape from reality. six short words but can brainstorm bunch of ideas on it.

    1. Yeah it can work for both meditation and for an escape from society. I love that about six word stories. They can be interpreted in so many ways.

  5. Drowning and stabbed, she sang sadly.
    ———–
    Mother killed enemies drowning precious children.
    ———-
    Life, drowning hope, sinks the day.
    ———
    The day you drowned I leapt.
    ———-
    I can’t drink if you drowned.
    —-
    Deadly waters made me miss you.
    ———–
    Six words can make a splash?

    1. Parting waters are Shakespeare’s sweet sorrows.
      ————
      Salty tales on fresh waters persevere.

      oops.
      [I guess I can’t write a story in six words nor a billion.(don’t feel inspired)]

  6. Hope you feel better soon. Eat, drink, and rest well. Flu can knock the best of us. Not sure what that one means however the picture does a good job painting one explanation 🙂

  7. lol…Oh Pooja. It’s been a while. I had to stop and think wtf is a SWS? lol. My brain is recovering from a failed attempt at NaNo. Just getting back at it after doing so much. Hope that flu doesn’t linger.
    Here’s my SWS:
    Relief encapsulated her. Silence. Finally peace.

    1. Lol it’s definitely been a while. Sorry to hear that, but sometimes writing daily does end up leading to burn out. That happens to me sometimes too.
      Thank you and love your six word story.

  8. Wish you a speedy recovery. I was having some throat pain two weeks ago and I took Echinacea, which helps build better immunity… Who knows, maybe it is just some placebo that can make one feel that one’s getting better.

    1. Thanks so much. I feel like most medications are kind of placebos. At least anti-viral ones since viruses don’t really have cures and you just kind of have to let them run their course.

  9. My first thought for this SWS was reimagining myself yesterday settling into bed feeling the exhaustion of work settle in and peacefully drifting off to sleep (which I did!). 😴
