    Ive read about him, and to me it seems like Pablo may have written this about his mother country Chile during the time he was in exile in Argentina after Chile outlawed communism and issued a warrant for his arrest.

    For me, its about a man trying to put on a brave face during a break up, trying to say he'd forget her if she didn't love him, trying to hold on to some manhood and dignity, but admitting to himself that he still would love and want her if she ever came back. a favorite of mine (Report) Reply

    a set of sentences talking of revenge, tit for tat attitude in love...i wonder if the poem goes well down the throat of all.. (Report) Reply

    This is a very mature attitude toward love that is realistic not masochistic. To be in love means having the other person in it with you. If the other does not reciprocate, the mutual love has died. Thank you, Neruda. Maybe one day I can see it this way and enjoy what is beautiful not what was once. (Report) Reply

    what is it about this great piece of creation? Every Time I read it, something new I find.First it seemed to be writings of a kindred soul.Next it shows the insecurity, a veiled threat of never forget me.Full of surprises.Cheers. (Report) Reply

    A Straight poem...! and yet profound..
    It is about a love affair not love per se...As love affair needs both ends to embrace each other for it to flower.
    A spark from only one side will remain only that much..; till it is joined by the other side too to create Fire..The passion which the poem seeks.. (Report) Reply

    i guess he is trying to say if you keep on loving me, i will keep on loving you more but if you stop loving me, i would have forgotten you, long....but anyway, i do really like the poem (Report) Reply

    It's a simply beautiful poem, an expression of love affair based on mutual agreement and total commitment on both parties. 'My love feeds on your love, beloved' fully captures 'the give and take' relationship. (Report) Reply

    You know how this is:
    if I look
    at the crystal moon, at the red branch
    of the slow autumn at my window, (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
