1959I 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.I love you as the plant that never blooms

but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;

thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,

risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.

I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;

so I love you because I know no other waythan this: where

When I read this I thought about my ex. He is now in jail for killing someone I know. I think what this poem is trying to say is the person loves this other person in secret because the other person is dark and someone who shouldn\'t be loved because of that darkness. I still love my ex because I know no different, because I can\'t help it but I love him in secret and with no pride. So that\'s how I see this poem.

It is a deeper kind of love one that can only be felt by two people who have an understanding for each other. He does not love this person as a material object or a thing of perfection. He loves this person for this persons heart and soul. This is love that two people share as one.

The first thing I thought of when I read this poem is the old tale of the king with three daughters - he asks for the daughters to prove which loves him most. The first two give him answers such as "more than the deep blue sea" etc. It is the third that says she loves him more than salt that ultimately (after a shuffle) inherits his kingdom. So salt is such a common thing that makes everyday life tastier - moral. If this is in anyway a nod to that tale, it is that this love is anything but common, but rather piercing, sharp.

Also, I thought of e cumming's epic love poem where he writes of the "bud of the bud" - the intrinsic dar spaces of love.

.: True Meaning :.

Personally, I feel that this poem is written in a narccist point of view where the persona loves himself. He gives himself unconditional love and loves himself for who he is rather than who he isn't. He feels that there is no "you" or "I" in the unconditional love he gives himself. There is only a "me". This is evident from the title, "I Do No Love You", which means that the persona's love for himself is not for "you", but instead for "me". This is indeed a positive outlook of life and enables the persona to be a optimistic person. It is indeed encouraging in whatever tasks we undertake. Neruda has indeed brought across the message of it is essential to love yourself through this poem pretty well. - Written by Vicky, Singapore

This poem in it's complexities portrays a love that goes beyond words or physical boundries. It is a deeper kind of love one that can only be felt by two people who have an understanding for each other. He does not love this person as a material object or a thing of perfection. He loves this person for this persons heart and soul. This is love that two people share as one. That is why at the end he seems to combine the two beings in physical movements cause there love links them together as one.
