“I Crave Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair” by Pablo Neruda

“I Crave Your Mouth, Your Voice, Your Hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.

I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.

I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body,
the sovereign nose of your arrogant face,
I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes,

and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
hunting for you, for your hot heart,
Like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.”~ Pablo Neruda

    One of my personal favorites! I do love his work. Have you seen the film Il Postino? Simply beautiful! A charming story built around his time on a small island on the coast of Italy during his exile…
