    It expresses true unconditional love, sort of contradictory but I love it. (Report) Reply

    the title of this poem is very unique, it corresponds to a saying that love has no reasons. it seems to demonstrate the agony and mesiry of unrequited love (Report) Reply

    'I do not love you' reminds me of ElizabethBrowning's 'If thou lovest me love me for not', but Pablo's poem touches a heart full of love more keenly. From love to hatred - what he says can't be the way of fleeing from the one you love. In fact, you cannot flee from the one you love as he (or she) stays in your heart.
