One thought on “Neruda”

  1. Neruda is so great. For that, I’m glad you haven’t written off all poetry.

    A few weeks ago, I finally wrote about a relationship that happened in the fall (Man #63.) I’m unsure now whether or not I had really loved before meeting him. It was the most difficult post I’ve ever written, but somehow, because of the depth of my feelings, I found my words. It might be some of my best writing.

    When you really find love, not infatuation, not mere physical attraction, you feel compelled to express it. That’s the driving force behind Neruda’s poetry. The words have to be placed on the page so they don’t become all-consuming.

    I hope you find her.
