Love and hate

Love is like water and hate is like a fire.
Love makes the world go round and hate makes it flatter.
In water there is life and in fire destruction.
Love set the world on expansion and hate on extinction.
Love is us and hate is me.
Hate is the door and love is the key.
Love expands age whilst hate dwindles it.
Love is paradise and feels like heaven whilst hate is bottomless pit.
Love is genuine and hate is fake.
They are not colours love is not white nor hate black.
Maybe iam blind but love would be rainbow.
Love is like the first raindropp which come with a surprise than hate which come to suppress.
Hate is seeing in little and love is seeing in surplus.

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
