Tonight I Can Write The Saddest Lines

Poem By Pablo Neruda

On the way of dreams
The life flows as a stream

Desire to make freak fate
Shake flowers on immortal soul set
But a destiny, Oh destiny!
I never close with sweet cream

I wash my ideas with new one
I warm all nights before The sun
Daré to do, I dare
Fear of mind, return to grime

Song of heart express mime
Uncertainity makes core crime
Oh words, Calm words!
Speak with me, Shall I do prime

The up and down, and rise and fall
Some day, I Shall overcome to all
I promise to me, Yes I!
Patient and passion, on both I deem.

If You Forget Me

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You

I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire.

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
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Sonnet Xvii

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

A Dog Has Died

My dog has died.
I buried him in the garden
next to a rusted old machine.

From – Twenty Poems Of Love

I can write the saddest lines tonight.
Write for example: ‘The night is fractured
and they shiver, blue, those stars, in the distance’
