[443] The Extinction of Hurt

There are 17-20 species of hurt alive today⁣
all of which live in the southern half of the heart⁣
Just before taking flight in the body, it releases numbness⁣
from our rusted feathers to transform itself into pain⁣
Most hurt swims in the body at a meagre pace⁣
but the fastest hurt can reach top speeds of 22 mph⁣
Usually a consequence of heartbreak⁣

The earliest known hurt fossil was found 66 million years ago⁣
About 4-5 million years after the earth could process the⁣
death of dinosaurs we understood that hurt is felt in slow motion⁣
Hurt is a carnivore that feeds on pride, ego, ignorance and other vices⁣
that it catches while swimming in the cesspool of being inhuman⁣
But once a year hurt experiences a catastrophic moult ⁣
which is simply the shedding of our defences into utter vulnerability⁣

Of the 5 species of hurt, the most endangered one is⁣
the hurt caused by the utter vulnerability⁣
When love shapes the history of a person into pain⁣
the arteries block to not open up to any new stories at all⁣
But it fails to realise that hurt is human⁣
Love is the answer and it is at the core of the species of being hurt⁣⁣
So the first step to the survival of love is the acceptance of the survival of hurt


NaPoWriMo Day 24: Today’s (optional) prompt is a fun one. Find a factual article about an animal. A Wikipedia article or something from National Geographic would do nicely – just make sure it repeats the name of the animal a lot. Now, go back through the text and replace the name of the animal with something else – it could be something very abstract, like “sadness” or “my heart,” or something more concrete, like “the streetlight outside my window that won’t stop blinking.” 

Chose this insightful article about penguins on the Smithsonian Magazine and I was surprised at the efficacy of this plot. Made me think about an abstract concept like hurt in wondrous mind expanding ways. Hope you like it too.

  1. Well… Heg love is the reason why we are hurting and hurt is the same reason we are loving so the extinction of hurt that episode will only happen once love has extinct.
