I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You

I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you

    The hate in love we feel when someone has betrayed us-simply and beautifully written. Love is indeed a multi-faceted emotion, and Neruda expresses it so well.

    ' I do not see you, but love you blindly'...MMMM

    My Goodness! Right to the quick. How Neruda expresses the loves that have paraded in and out of my life...how painful. And yet the memory that Pablo issues forth with this masterpiece.... once again begins the parade.

    Amazingly painful...Love and pain...blind.

    i have to learn from neruda how to write love poems.

  • Dewald Viljoen (1/17/2008 3:24:00 AM)

    I just call him Pablo, i think he will forgive my familiarity. reading his work is like listening to and old friend telling me of his life. the man was a genius.
