Many love poems that are quoted by men to women describe ‘the one’, they go on to paint a picture of this woman who was God’s special masterpiece and what not. And,truth be told, every woman, deep down, wants to be that woman for her man.
In high school, I came across this poem. It forever changed my perception of love poems. Pablo Neruda paints the same picture, but his expression of love to his queen is not popular. Check it out and let me know what you think.
~ Pablo Neruda
I have named you queen.
But you are the queen.
When you go through the streets
And when you appear
Only you and I,
