If vengeance is a dish best served cold, what are other emotions?

All my life, I have been told that vengeance is a dish best served cold. Does that mean revenge is a food? If that is the case, then I think all emotions and feelings should be classified as substances. Anger could be seen as a filling meal. Once taken, it stays within your system for a long long time. After becoming angry, you can't eat. Any food you try to consume immediately further agitates the already sensitive stomach. Anger gives you energy. You feel stronger, but may not be better for becoming angry in the first place. Then what is love? Love would not be a food, it does not fill. After loving, you are constantly craving more. Nothing can sate it. No, love is a poison. It starts suddenly and slowly festers as it courses through the body and makes it's way to the heart. It creeps up on that organ, hitting with the deadly accuracy of the sharpest knife. It causes emotions to be felt more strongly, it brings with it unbearable pain that never fades. Love makes the heart weak enough to shatter yet has no kindness to break it fully and end all suffering. That poison enters the heart and invades all other cells. Every molecule and atom of the human is subject to the torture. Love makes you vulnerable. You would give all to the object of that love. Bleed for them and die for them readily, yet that seeping poison is relentless. It won't let you die. No, you must suffer. Then comes love's counterpart: jealousy. Jealousy and love coexist with each other. Love is poison and jealousy is venom. It corrodes the heart and eats away at you. It is spurned on by anger until it has consumed every ounce of your very being. Yet jealousy is not brought on without do reason. It sews it's seeds into love and takes it's nourishment from the sins of another. Unfortunately, the actions of another are something that cannot be controlled by the affected person. Love, Jealousy and Anger have free reign and there is nothing that can be done to stop it. Therefore, humanity's most accepted means of retribution for the injustices that have been suffered is Vengeance. The dish best served when it is cold as ice and callous as the grave. Been poisoned with love lately? Maybe injected with the venom of jealousy shortly after? Why not help yourself to some anger while it's still warm? Then we can begin to prepare the vengeance. After all, it will take some time before it is cold enough to serve...

A small piece going into the finer detailing of Love's Poison:

Love is a poison, a corroding venom that strikes the heart swiftly and painlessly. First you feel the jolt, the impact of that cunning arrow. Then you become light-headed. Your heart pounds at a feverish pace as you break out into a cold sweat. The very air you breathe only serves to further the toxin. It races through you and consumes you without your knowledge. Soon all you can do is either embrace it and comply to it's every whim or fight it and suffer the agonizing pain and agony until it suffocates you. No matter what you do to avoid it, this thing called love will surely come for you, and when you least expect it.
