Love is a classic

May 13, 2007

Oricat de mult ai incerca si oricat de simtitor ai vrea sa pari, dragostea, si mai ales declaratiile de dragoste, ajung sa fie corny.

Insa sunt unele lucruri care raman clasice: un “Te iubesc” dimineata, o cerere in casatorie in genunchi, un sarut in Paris, o tigara de dupa, o ea care doarme pe umarul lui, bunicii mei care si-au sarbatorit nunta de aur. Nu mai sunt cheesy, sunt dezarmante, heart-warming, sunt reassuring pentru noi, toti ceilalti, care am zis cel putin o data “Never again” prematur, cu ipocrizie si cu speranta mascata.
Va las cu Neruda, cuz this is the kind of love I’d love.

I don’t love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz
or the arrows of carnations that fire shoots out:
I love you as certain dark things are 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,
and thanks to your love, lives darkly on my body
the fragrance risen from the earth.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you simply, without complexities or pride:
I love you because I don’t know no other way of lovingbut this,
in which there is no I or you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that when you close you eyes I fall asleep.

Pablo Neruda, Sonnet XVII

Versiunea originala

No te amo como si fueras rosa de sal, topacio,
o flecha de claveles que propagan el fuego:
te amo como se aman ciertas cosas oscuras,
secretamente, entre la sombra y el alma.

Te amo como la planta que no florece y lleva dentro de sí, escondida, la luz de aquellas flores,
y gracias a tu amor vive oscuro en mi cuerpo
el apretado aroma que ascendió de la tierra.

Te amo sin saber cómo, ni cuándo, ni de dónde,
te amo directamente sin problemas ni orgullo: así te amo por que no sé amar de otra manera,

sino así de este modo en que no soy ni eres,
tan cerca que tu mano sobre mi pecho es mía,
tan cerca que se cierran tus ojos con mi sueño.

Frumos, nu?
