Hurt

The Afghan Whigs have a song that has the line, "If it starts to hurt, then you have to say so." I agree with that. I also think that you should get angry when it hurts. Punch things. Break things. Things, not people, not animals. This is key. Rage. Cry. Wail. Do not wallow. Scream. Play music really loud, let the music drown you out. Drink and drink and drink, but don't expect this anesthesia to cure the hurt, it just deadens it. Cut your hair. Pierce your lip. Hug a pillow like it's the only friend you got left. Exhaust yourself to escape the hurt. Will it ever go away? I hope not.
