50 Word Thursday #11

This is my attempt at 50 Word Thursday #11

Thank you Deb Whittam


Along with the photo above, the following phrase serves as a prompt.

‘If I’d stopped to think I might not have done it, but fury is a great disregarder of caution.’

The rules are simple.  Write something, poem, short story, anything, using 50 words minimum 250 words maximum in multiples of 50. Can use the photo or phrase or both.


Fallen Star


Ruby, you’ll be in the electric chair for sure over this one.  Jesus a US Senator, well…yeah there is no self defense claim here..not that they will listen to. It doesn’t matter how many people he promised to introduce me to in Hollywood or how many times he tried to paw me- you are done.

Brings me out here alone, after telling me we wouldn’t be.  I should have just jumped off this boat and went back to Iowa.  That ain’t happening now though. What was I thinking.

If I had stopped to think, I might not have done it. But, fury is a great disregarder of caution.

Calling me those vile names…because I didn’t want his greasy hands on me.  That did it. Sent me over the edge fast. Before I could even blink twice, the gun…I had it in my hand.  It was so loud.

The cigarette calms my nerves, the whisky burns and makes me forget about the pain in my head.

I’m sure a few taxpayers will be grateful at least. “Miss are you okay over there? ”, a voice called from the shore.

Oh shit…I inhaled my last draw of freedom.
