My Tribute to NERUDA...

First and foremost LENNON will be back soon.. as soon as he gets a new inspiration, so for the time being I put forward a poem by one of my favorite Poet, PABLO NERUDA .....

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.

I love you only because it's you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

Maybe January light will consume
My heart with its cruel
Ray, stealing my key to true calm.

In this part of the story I am the one who
Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,
Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.

The first part of the poem is about the feeling for the person whom one loves with all the passion that can not even be matched by the raging fire. As one feels so passionately, contrasting emotions start to flow from our heart(cold to fire). We love that person desperately but if we don't get her/her we start to feel jealous and out of the love also start hating like hell. But as time passes, our love increases and even if we don't get the person we keep on loving, loving blindly without even seeing. At the end we see ourselves as the firefly, who knowing he will die still goes for the fire... so will I die.

@Ankita: It is my interpretation, I would like to hear your's too...
