    It depicts the scattering emotions that come with love, where love meets hate and jealousy and a million other conflicting emotions bound together by the simple complexities on one, love. Just amazing. (Report) Reply

    his talent is unimaginable
    in 70s he was able to set a new trend
    poems need not necessarily use huge vocabulary to convey the thought
    simplicity itself gave music to his poetry (Report) Reply

    Neruda has always been inscrutable. I loved him first for his association with Che Guevara and the revolutions in Latin America. It was then that I began reading his love poetry, which, I don't claim I understand. But, there is a lot of beauty and burning passion in his love poems. This one is just another example of how he can weave words and emotions and leave the reader in awe. (Report) Reply

    The poem which is a sonnet of 4-4-3-3 originally composed in Spanish and it is better than the translation..this sonnet is about one sided love.. a mental picture..try to hate - start loving, poem has painted by the poet in the way to swoon very nice poem Peace be with him (Report) Reply

    Extremely passionate about love and its different aspects, that's what Neruda is always; life a flame. Reading him in original Spanish is much more enriching though, as some ideas can get lost in translation. Juan Ramon Jimenez and Pablo Neruda can be two of the countless reasons for learning the beautiful language they wrote in. (Report) Reply

    Very passionate and truthful. He knows he loves her, but only because he is in love with her. He knows her faults and they make him hate her, yet he loves her in the end. Very true. (Report) Reply

    A strange thing this we call love
    An all encompassing feeling. Wow!
    A roller coaster ride that so begins
    Till you eventually either lose or win....

    Good poem, but a bit taxing on our grey cells (Report) Reply
