Senseless mercy

He wrestled the knife away and released her arm as she grew calm.  She ran and he turned to leave.  Fireworks across his skull as he fell, never seeing the gun.

My first Sunday 160 - it was fun!

Day 24 of the 30-day music challenge is a song that you want to play at your funeral.  For the last decade, it's been Bittersweet Symphony by the Verve Pipe:


  1. I love the drama! She had a gun?! Great 160.
    And II think Bittersweet Symphony is a fantastic funeral song. I like your style Ms. Ixy.

  2. Wellll...think I'll be back for more. Loved your 160. As for scooters, I'm sending you a photo of my Suzuki, OK?

  3. dolp! knives, guns...i think he may be hanging out with the wrong ladies....

  4. Sorry but I can't stand the Verve. This song sounds like they were plannng for it to be in a car commercial.

  5. I've never heard this song before. Interesting. You have a great Sunday Ms Ixy!

  6. I would love to see that 160 turned into a short story. I will definitely be back to read more of your blog!

    Thanks for stopping by mine earlier, and leaving a comment. I answered your question in a return comment, in case you didn't see that.

    Where did you find the 30 day music challenge? That sounds like fun.

    Have a great week!

  7. Great Sunday 160. A real film nior feel. Thanks for playing along.

  8. The written word never ceases to amaze me...a very powerful 160 characters, my dear! I love the Verve...this song is so sweet and hauntingly so.

    Happy Sunday!
