burning it was so
much better than
letting it burn me

This poem really stirs up a lot of feelings and interpretations for me. 

The first thing I thought of (initially) is self-harm: hurting myself is much better than letting whatever happened/whatever i did/whatever will happen hurt me first.
The second thing I thought of was: if i forget about it (or the person) then it(or the person) will forget about me
The third thing I thought of was: If I harm the person then he/she won't harm me back.

I'm curious to know what you originally intended with this piece.

I must say, you're quite a master at writing simplistic, short, powerful pieces. What's your secret? :heart:

this comment is so damn perfect. that's exactly what i had in mind when i wrote it down. all of the above. i was feeling a mix of self harm, revenge, and violence. taking my anger out on them, taking my anger out on someone else, taking my anger out on myself. it was a rush of emotions and i could not decide what would feel better but all i knew was that burning it would not let it burn me as much. "burn it" referring to any of the above actions, all of them, and specifically burning the person who caused the pain.

Ooh, nice. The "it" could be so many things, which is what makes this so intriguing. I like it.

being frozen wasn't so
much worse than
forcing the chill upon it
