    The first time I read this poem was in my very old, very worn copy of eclipse from the twilight saga, and for some unexplainable reason it made me feel.... like I belonged, ever since it was my favourite poem and I hope that some day I will be able to write as good poems with as much meaning and soul.

    Most definitely an all-time favorite. The poem, though short, is able to convey two ideas of complete contrast while giving each its own personality, definition and importance; an excellent example of antithesis. Bringing icy-hot hate and passion to a new level. (Report) Reply

    Rant and rave at close of day or simply freeze away when passion dies.Could be about a relationship.I have though my world had ended once or twice. (Report) Reply

    this poem can have so many meanings the fire could be war and hate and the ice simply lethargy and uncorcern about every single problem in the world (Report) Reply

    Such a short poem that delivers a vivid sketch of what our future may turn out to be: which side are you on? (Report) Reply

    I like some of his poems but this is just not that great in my opinion. The conent does not get me to think, laugh, or feel anything except that he talks about the end with no purpose and is probably depressed when he writes this, or better yet, annoyed like he just doesn't care about the end of the world and writes this for people who do in a way to mock them for their disagreements about how it might take place. I don't really see this as an inspirational work of art like the Road Less Traveled was. There is the kind of art one creates to vent, then the kind one uses for touching the heart and mind of others, and even society at large. This is none of those things. (Report) Reply

    Stephenie Myer has a page before the prologue in each of the Twilight books dedicated to a poem. This is from the third book I think.

    In response to all the hate of twilight being related to this poem; If the younger generation is being exposed to great poets and poetry, no matter the medium, I see no issue with it (Report) Reply

    In the movie 2012, America and Europe ended in fire (volcanoes) whereas India and her neighbouring countries ended in water (melting of ice) . (Report) Reply

    What is more powerful Fire (desire) or Ice (hate) . Both magnificent in their own sinful way.

    This is so piercing and thought provoking. (Report) Reply

    Noor al-abri, there is absolutely no way for him to keep it up, he is dead, sadly yes, but the only possible way for him to post new poems is if a person discovers poems written by him. Good poem, one of my favorites. (Report) Reply
