Flipside

Love is a powerful thing
Shared it has the power to heal
To mend, to repair
Love is a transforming thing
It brightens the world
Opens your eyes to new wonders
Love is a hardy thing
It can bloom in the coldest places
If the seed is planted, the sapling nourished
But Love is not all that Love is
For Love can change
Hidden away in the darkness
It can fade and discolor
Blacken and harden
Unshared it congeals and corrodes
Becoming toxic
Eating away from the inside
Left out in the cold it turns brittle
Shattering into many pieces
Like shrapnel
Yes, Love is a powerful thing
Yes, Love is a transforming thing
Yes, Love is a hardy thing
And so is Hate
