'I remembered you with my soul clenched in that sadness of mine that you know.' That's my favorite line. Such intimacy of emotion is reflected in those words. Also, an intense rawness and pain are beautifully portrayed with your words throughout the poem. I enjoyed this very much. Thanks for sharing.
Unique piece from Neruda. Thousand times it will vibrate again...We have lost even this twilight. Drumming, Drumming the beat loud through the conscious of 21st also.....Sometimes a piece of sun / burned like a coin in my hand....Lost the hands, lost the believe, lost the togetherness........Magnificently Neruda overwhelmed the reader at the point of the crossroad where day diminishes and stepping night closely. Twilight complex..... Literally, living time of the man metaphorically the day-time and night signals the finishing journey of a life. Naturally man bends to find out other existence of another super-entity whom we do try to explain as Almighty..... Simply the common thought after reading the piece may be considered as lost love. Partially it is truth and much global idea of acceptance. But according to poem, generally when the feeling of pain appears just at the definite point of time, twilight, we have to throw light on the universal cry of human soul. Longing for eternity....Smart expression of thirst and non-satiety as fits with the style of legendary Neruda....Nice put again by PH.....................Lastly yet utter once again.......always you recede through the evenings / toward the twilight erasing statues.
This is my favorite poem of Neruda. It encompasses the whole world of what it feels like to miss someone that you love beyond all reason. This is the most beautiful sentence ever wriiten 'Why will the whole of love come on me suddenly
when I am sad and feel you are far away? '
