Just imagine Earth million of years ago: unmarked by prejudice, by words, by war. Love was defined by men clubbing women on their heads, happiness defined as discovering fire and along with it warmth. But mankind is greedy, the more they get the more they wanted. Love isn’t about the simple act of appreciating your other half anymore, it’s now about marking territories and objectifying others by calling them “yours”.
It’s funny how love started as raw and in-the-moment kind of thing and now, it’s all tender and carefully planned words used in courtly love. A wonder that we still wonder why love doesn’t last.
