I’ve received emails from Wicked Darlings who wanted to know if “hurt and harm weren’t just two different ways of saying the same thing?” I replied that it wasn’t, and promised, that once we finished gifting the cruellest month with our poetry, we would discuss Hurt vs. Harm at length. For the purpose of this prompt, “Hurt equals physical sensation; and Harm refers to physical injury, damage or illness.”
So, my Luvs, keeping that in mind, on day 8 of NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015, Weave a poem that explores the difference between hurt and harm.
* Leave a link to your poem, as a comment. Include the title of your entry, and the direct link of your post. Example: “NaPoWriMo with Magaly Guerrero 2015”: https://magalyguerrero.com/napowrimo-with-magaly-guerrero-2015/. Visit other Wicked Darlings and comment on their yum. They might visit you back (it’s polite).
* If you use this prompt, please link it to your post. And if you are feeling extra delicious, link your poem to the main entry. Show others where to go. Spread the word. Linking back to the source will make martyrs all over history hurt a bit less. It would.
