Love and Hate
Love and hate,
Are they really such opposites?
In my opinion,
I think not.
Love is an extreme emotion, as well as hate;
Hate takes over your thoughts, as well as love.
Love can make you do dumb things, hate can do the same.
True hate takes most of your energy; true love does, too.
Love can be mistaken, Hate can be as well.
Hate takes time to develop-in this way, love is no different.
Love can be faked, hate can be, too.
Hate can change your mindset, love can do that, too.
Love makes you think of that other involved,
Hate makes you think of that other as well.
Hate can make you sick, love can do the same.
Hate and love,
Not so different, after all.
They may sound contrary,
But they are quite similar in the end.
