Pablo Neruda : Sonnet XVII

This is my favourite Pablo Neruda sonnet …It’s so deep…when i first read it,it plucked a string in my soul. So I thought I should share…

Pablo Neruda
Sonnet XVII
I don’t love you as if you were the salt-rose, topaz
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as certain dark things are loved,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that doesn’t bloom and carries
hidden within itself the light of those flowers,
and thanks to your love, darkly in my body
lives the dense fragrance that rises from the earth.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you simply, without problems or pride:
I love you in this way because I don’t know any other way of loving
but this, in which there is no I or you,
so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand,
so intimate that when I fall asleep it is your eyes that close.

Sigh…..

I want you……bad. Deep.

Like air. Like warmth on a cold day

Like life in a barren place……

You…. fill a void….void deep and dark and……..HUNGRY……

I want to brand you as mine…..

Tattoo my name in small bold letters on your clavicle so he KNOWS

Give you hickies every time we meet….

I want to drag you away in public and make slow steamy love to you….

Each time we meet in the throes of passion

Our bodies making sweet overtures

the symphony of flesh against flesh

harmonising with your increasingly loud moans and my grunts of appreciation

I want to lay with you and share a blunt

Pass the…
