NEVER UNDERESTIMATE A CLINTON.

Hunh? That's only four words, Broke. Or are you just throwing it in to spark conversation?

Ennis:
Be constant in hide your feelings


Jack:

Be free,love as you will


I like your silences,quiet conversations of evident sensations,where our words are life´s tinsels.
The lost illusions are the found truths.

Tired of your dumb ass missing.

I wrote about this on my blog last week after I saw about it on another blog.  Mine would be:

    Living on the edge - looking in

The explanation, which is taken from my ‘about me’ page on my blog is:

    “Living on the edge”, as the tagline says, is what I do - living on the edge of what my body allows me to do, living on the edge of doing the sensible thing, living on the edge of the fictional world in my head and looking in, and living on the edge of sanity.

Hmmmm, Ennis and Jack?

Ennis: Can't fix it - gotta stand it or Hid it, lost it, regretted it

Jack: Loved too much, died too soon

On BBM overall, the message I guess rather than the story as such (I think, but I'd not sure, that this might be a quote from the Bible):

To thine own self be true

My favourite already posted ones are both BBM-Cat's:

Jack:
Dreams, never came to pass, gone

Ennis:
Life in a brown paper sack

"Life in a brown paper sack" nearly made me cry again. There's something so incredibly sad about that.

Very nice Bliss! Love the ones you came up with for yourself, and for Ennis and Jack. I particularly like the one you created for Ennis: Hid it, lost it, regretted it - that sums things up so perfectly and concisely.

Baron, how clever! Sheep, Sex, Marriage, Divorce, Murder, Shirts. Love it!

Amazing - The power of six words.  :D
