    When I got tired of copying love poems from the Chinese and Japanese into urgent, wretched note cards to lovers who were unattainable and I m a genius at finding unattainable characters to pine after that s when I turned to Pablo Neruda He s even better than Asian poets at crafting throbbing, passionate, wounded phrases of affection I love you as the plant that never bloomsbut carries in itself

    I really sometimes wonder if I love right, love correctly, or if I love at all and am not just miming what I think, what I want, I feel For me I love all at once, I fall very fast, but rarely I will go long loveless periods through life, happy and unthinking of what passions I am missing, unenvious of people paired in love, like a bright new boat at sea not thinking at all of the harbor And suddenly in a

    8.5 10I have been consuming poetry in the last few months at an inordinate rate I enter phases cycles in my life where it s easier to read poetry than prose importantly, where my life demands poetry than it does prose It s silly, in that context, to add long passages of my boring prose to describe what Neruda does perfectly in poems All I can add is, if you haven t read Neruda, or haven t read him lately, do your soul a favour and pic

    5 Stunning Stars I was utterly swept away by the beauty of these love sonnets.Someone had sent me a quote from one of them, I fell in love with itand just had to read I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or prideso I love you because I know no other way than thiswhere I does not exist, nor youso close that your hand on my chest is my hand,so close that your eyes
