Treasure Island

Pablo Neruda

(12 July 1904 – 23 September 1973 / Parral / Chile)

Don't Go Far Off


Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station

    yet a wonderful write by true words of heart as when fails to reflects upon sweet flow to enlighten...most emotive ever found in red glow by soul (Report) Reply

    With the first verse I felt that big, warm, round dropp sliding down my face, and than the other one, and the third one...it was like long waited summer rain begun to soak a dried soil of my heart...I remembered I had been loved.
    Thank you Goki.

    to Pablo Neruda
    For his poem “I Crave, Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair”

    I'm sure this poem,
    Is translated
    Lost many glitters.
    I wish I know Spanish Langue
    To sing with Pablo
    Our love Songs!
    Yes, the love He has in His Heart
    No one else can translate
    Ask him he will say
    It is an undoubtedly true.

    I speak with poets
    Even if they are far away
    Somewhere no one knows!

    The poem should have been called its 'real name', MY WORLD. it is a breath taking piece with solid imagery that is mind blowing....... (Report) Reply

    The actual poem that is I Crave Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair is...

    I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair.
    Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
    Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
    I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.

    I hunger for your sleek laugh,
    your hands the color of a savage harvest,
    hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
    I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.

    I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body,
    the sovereign nose of your arrogant face,
    I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes,

    and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
    hunting for you, for your hot heart,
    like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.

    This poem is actually titled Don't Go Far Off, Not Even For A Day.

    I Crave Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair is a different piece entirely. (Report) Reply

    the poem i fantastic it really interacted with me because it reminds me of my boyfriend who had me leave because he did not have money for school because his sponsor failed him on the last minute. now he is far away frim me and we just call each other only but that is not enough, and i really miss him and i hope he misses me too because my love for him will never change even if we do not have eachother now maybe in the future we wiil have eachother (Report) Reply
