      And because Love battles I lived in the prairies before I got to know you and I did not wait love but I was laying in wait for and I jumped on the rose. What more can they tell you? I am neither good nor bad but a man, and they will then associate the danger of...

    Sonnet Xvii

    I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz, or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul. I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the light of...

    A long time ago I discovered this marvellous Chilean poet in translation. But as with all my loves and friendships but one, my restless mind found new incarnations of that paradisiac landscape. Then I saw the wonderful film Il Postino with a great Philippe Noiret as Pablo...

    IF YOU FORGET ME..... I want you to know one thing.  You know how this is:  if I look  at the crystal moon, at the red branch  of the slow autumn at my window,  if I touch  near the fire  the impalpable ash  or the wrinkled body of the log,  everything...

    Your Laughter

    Take bread away from me, if you wish, take air away, but do not take from me your laughter. Do not take away the rose, the lance flower that you pluck, the water that suddenly bursts forth in joy, the sudden wave of silver born in you. My struggle is harsh and I come...

    I Want To Do With You

    what Spring does with the cherry trees... : ) This was the first Neruda line I heard, but I also misheard it. I thought the narrator said: "I want to do to you what the wind does to the cherry trees" which on reflection is certainly different! Can't say I was disappointed...

    Carnal Apple, Woman Filled, Burning Moon

    Carnal apple, Woman filled, burning moon, dark smell of seaweed, crush of mud and light, what secret knowledge is clasped between your pillars? What primal night does Man touch with his senses? Ay, Love is a journey through waters and stars, through suffocating air, sharp...

    One of My Favorite Love Poems By Pablo Neruda

    Drunk as drunk on turpentine    From your open kisses,   Your wet body wedged    Between my wet body and the strake    Of our boat that is made out of flowers,    Feasted, we guide it - our fingers    Like tallows...

    Don't Go Far Off...

    Don't go far off... Don't go far off, not even for a day, because -- because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

    Walking Around

    It so happens I am sick of being a Man. And it happens that I walk into tailor shops and movie houses dried up, waterproof, like a swan made of felt steering my way in a water of wombs and ashes. The smell of barbershops makes me break into hoarse sobs. The only thing I...

    Poem 15

    Poem 15 I like for you to be still: it is as though you were absent, and you hear me from far away and my voice does not touch you. It seems as though your eyes had flown away and it seems that a kiss had sealed your mouth. As all things are filled with my soul you emerge from...

    The Saddest Lines Is Really Powerful..
