8 Comments on “A Valentine’s Day Story About Broken Hearts”

  1. What an amazing and awesome story! You, of course, made me cry. I am such a sap that way. Mercedes you are a truly gifted writer. I feel honored to see bits of your stories shared with me.



  2. This story is beautifully crafted, and poetic, so of course it makes me think of the William Carlos Williams poem, “Asphodel, That Greeny Flower,” with its oh-so-quotable lines, including:
    It is difficult
    to get the news from poems
    yet men die miserably every day
    for lack
    of what is found there.

    I would say the same of poignant fiction.
