    I don't think this poem just applies to the broken hearted. I am very much in love and I was thinking of reading this poem at my wedding. I don't think there would be divorce in our future but I know that the person you love needs to remember that love has to be worked at consciously once it has been there long. (Report) Reply

    The poet gives all the counsel needed to the victims of breakups. And all counsel in a poem is not an easy task, thus in being able to combine counsel with the finest essence of poetry Mr Neruda has done a good job indeed. (Report) Reply

    It is so difficult to believe the poem when one is in love. love seems so you can keep on loving a person no matter what.i guess its only after a heartbreak that you know that the poet is right...that love is mortal, that love feeds on love, that love dies when unrequited. i guess what remains is the memory of being in love. for all those who want to move on....this is just the poem. this is reality.

    one of my favourite poems ever! the sheer simplicity of the words used is where the beauty of it lies.. the IL POSTINO version of it recited by madonna impacts more in touching one. read redress of poetry by seamus heaney and it'll vouch for the greatness of this poem, it gives goosebumps, everytime one reads it, and thats pure art. a very true poem.. its how it always is!

    truly a great poem, it portrays the pure feeling of love in the most practical way and teaches all youngsters to move on in life no matter how there love-story ends! (Report) Reply

    While it may seem so sad at first, it is actually a very realistic view of love, why dwell in unrequited love? (Report) Reply

    to forget is to let go? or is it a state of denial, a defense mechanism? why do we wish to forget when we really don't want to? to keep the pain from escalating, from further ruining us? But we like the pain, we revel in it.

    Neruda sure knows how to pierce the heart.
