Battered Housewife

She feels so much pain, she thinks she may go insane.
What would make her feel better?
How to stop this gut churning, blood boiling, mind numbing fear.
The light stealing through the window glints on the blade of a knife.
She picks it up smiling, it would look much better buried in his chest.

This is almost identical to the screenplay I recently submitted to the suits at the Lifetime channel. Only in my version, it's one of those knives that can cut a tomato after slicing through his beer can. (I'm talking to the Ginsu folks about cross-advertising tie-in's.)

very nicely crafted 55.
I love your writing style, even in one of these shorty'
will you finish this with another 55? I'd like to know how it ends.

Is this avatar pic really you?
I swear you look like an actress.
If it really is you, you're HOT!
