I could see Mercy was all about herself.  She’s changed people said. She’s not like that any more. Give her the benefit of the doubt. She was gone by morning. So was he. And just like that, I had no husband, no friend and no one to blame but myself.

  1. I’ve learned the difficult lesson to trust my instinct and intuition. Giving “them” a chance never works for anyone but “them”.
    Then again it is good to put out the trash, even if someone does it for you. Remember always you are spectacular and touch many souls.

  2. A perfect nutshell tale. Poignantly ironic that the person’s name is ‘Mercy’.

  5. On the surface. Feels like anger. Tastes like reticent. But deep down, this reads as indelible ink which stains for a life time.
