#SixWordStories Feature: October 8 - October 22
A type of Flash Fiction, six word stories are (very) short stories with an exact word count: six words. SixWordStories is the place where, alongside quality, quantity really does matter. Though these stories are so brief in length, they can be as profound, if not more, than the prose and poetry you see and read every day, partly because six word stories can tell us so much and yet contain so little.
In our feature articles, we will be showcasing selections of the wonderful six word stories submitted to our bi-weekly word and theme prompts. New bi-weekly prompts will also be announced here.

What Children Don't Know
It is not until Evening has
wrapped her womb in the
wool of late night yearnings
that I feel the press and
heavy weight of sadness
my heart.
An ugly plague
Sir La Mort has touched
upon me
time and time again-
It catches me with bone fingers
Twined into my spine
He kisses my cheek with soft caress.
You wicked devil.
I kiss him back  
desert upon my lips.

Give It The Green Light
Almost daily in my job, myself and my colleagues come up against people who have a limited understanding of the world of learning disabilities. These aren't just any people though, they're potential employers, colleagues and bosses in vocations that people with learning disabilities would like to enter. But they're restricted. Not because of their own abilities as someone with learning difficulties, not because they can't do the job as well as someone who doesn't have learning disabilities - they are restricted by perception, by stereotyping and by ignorance to what they really are capable of. Give it the Green Light is a 15 minute film showing how easy it is to employ somebody who has a learning difficulty, Aspergers, Downs Syndrome and so on. Have a watch, you might have your perceptions changed. And when you've done that, pass it on.
My job involves coaching these people through applications, interviews and their first few weeks at work. I don't pretend that they can do all of that

her name was october, but
she was born in november
and painted sweet like summer.
she said someday she would become a masochistic poet or maybe an offstage actress, because she wasn't good for much else.
she said someday she would stop dreaming of breaking her promises to the dead, because if they gave up on her, she'd have nothing left.
she said someday she'd wake up to a nightmare instead of falling asleep to one; she figured maybe that would be easier, because you can't scream and cry with your eyes open wide.
                          (honey, they'll think you're crazy.)
she said someday she would figure out if she was a libra or a scorpio or a goddamn sagittarius; it didn't really matter, but she just wanted to know the stars as well as they knew her.
she said someday she would become Satan's asylum, and demons would dwell in the deepest crevices

Post Mortem
I am a walking, talking universe of dead poets
who tattoo their stanzas into my flesh
with ghostly, typewriter fingers.
I live and breathe their worldly disasters
like a nicotine addiction I've never had.
Drowning in their scribbles
I kiss their shoreline romances,
envy their Annabel Lee's,
& carry their hearts in my heart.
I am 7am coffee on Sunday mornings:
a half drunk, hungover limerick
waiting to happen.
I am jealousy:
nothing more than weak words,
& a tongue-tied cliche-
but death becomes me.

Dinner In a Tomb
She always did love pomegranates.
She didn't know I'd poisoned them, when I left them on the table when she came to retrieve her belongings. She didn't know I'd already found a new place, that I'd set her a trap, a plan to bring her here, down, down into the catacombs that are now my kingdom.
She stares at me now, dark circles beneath wide, empty eyes. I offer her another seed.
"Come now, my dear. Do have something to eat. You look deathly pale." I flash her a grin she ignores.
I butter bread and place it in her cold hand. "I've arranged this feast, just for the two of us, and you haven't even the good graces to eat it?" Her blue lips offer no excuses for her rudeness.
The bread slips from her hand. I retrieve it, curl her fingers around the crusty edge. "Try again, darling. You'll get the hang of it."
I brush golden curls back from her bloodless face.
"I told you you'd never escape me. My hell is your hell, my love."

on sunsets
the blackberry summer
painted its fingers through your hair,
and though the wheat-yellowed tint
finally took, it was too late
to save your clovered eyes,
shot through with the red
of a bloody sunset that couldn't help
but rub its hands across your chin
your gaze was like the moonlight on my skin,
stained sepia with the toss and roll of time
but it wasn't enough to coax
my black-eyed susan heart to bloom
the bending branches of your body
rattle bare in the autumn wind
the sun has set on summer,
and the green field of your eyes
has wilted beneath the frost

30 Traits of an Empath
1.     Knowing: Empaths just know stuff, without being told. It's a knowing that goes way beyond intuition or gut feelings, even though that is how many would describe the knowing. The more attuned they are the stronger this gift becomes.
2.     Being in public places can be overwhelming: Places like shopping malls, supermarkets or stadiums, where there are lots of people around, can fill the Empath with turbulently vexed emotions that are coming from others.
3.     Feeling others emotions and taking them on as your own: This is a huge one for Empaths. To some, they will feel emotions off those near by and with others they will feel emotions from those a vast distance away, or both. The more adept Empath will know if someone is having bad thoughts about them, even from a great distance.
4.     Watching violence, cruelty or tragedy on the TV is unbearable: The more attuned an Empath becom
