I love you without knowing how

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 hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how,
or when,
or from where.
I love you straightforwardly,
without complexities or pride;
so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.~

~ Pablo Neruda
After so much time has passed, I still love you ever so deeply and profoundly.
My love for you will never fade away, my beloved.
You are me and I am you.
Two star crossed lovers, united in the realms of heaven.
United and no longer divided.
We are one.

  • I LOVE you without knowing how/when or where?
    You are me and I am you.

  • Bawww, I'm so deep and passionate
    That I had to
    Spew out a bunch of
    pretentious
    poetry
    onto a panty-sniffing site.
    Imagine me
    As I sit by a moonlit window
    clutching a rose to my tender bosom
    Tears falling like crystal
    Boo-hoo, boo-hoo
    Read this testament to my
    Pain
    And swoon to the beat of my next level Sensitivity.
    Oh woe
    Oh poor me

    *mic drop*

  • Idiot!

  • Perhaps the delusion of loving someone who just used you, is all a bad dream...….!

  • Or just the result of eating Taco Bell right before bedtime
