    forgetting is very simple,
    erase that feeling that trembles,
    which makes you to stumble,
    not to remember, to twinkle. (Report) Reply

    I love this part:

    To leave me at the shore
    of the heart where I have roots,
    that on that day,
    at that hour,
    I shall lift my arms
    and my roots will set off
    to seek another land. (Report) Reply

    After all its not about the ideal love or, the idealization of love but the raw human feelings so beautiful, imperfect, and complex. Simplistic in style, delicate with an edge. I love you i need you and i miss you but reassure me. Denials, obsession, needs and longings, theres pride..the declaration of the ability to be independent and to let go. Be there for me, love me and I'll cherish you with my all; but if you dont want me then I shall not need you too. (Report) Reply

  • Rookie Sam Aleks (3/31/2012 9:30:00 PM)

    so basically, i'll love you so long as you love me. very childish and soggy i think, not to mention boring. a very lazy poem. (Report) Reply

    To me this poem is incredibly shallow despite its beautiful imagery.The depth and quality of one's love for another cannot be contingent on the depth and quality of the other's for them. That is not true love. That is abject subjugation, dependency, neediness. Is he saying love is only real when it is mutual? This is not true love. It is capricious and CONDITIONAL. True love is inextinguishable because it is timeless and unconditional. Sometimes love hurts, esp. when it is unrequited. Feigning indifference or affecting a false bravado is not only delusional but dysfunctional as well. This way his feelings would never be resolved if not returned in kind. I thought maybe he was trying to be ironic but it doesn't work either way. The mere fact that someone writes beautifully does not validate their message. (Welcome replies.) (Report) Reply
