Dark Sonnet, de Neil Gaiman
I don’t think that I’ve been in love, as such,
Although I liked a few folk pretty well.
Love must be vaster than my smiles or touch,
For brave men died and empires rose and fell
For love, girls follow boys to foreign lands,
And men have followed women into hell.
In plays and poems someone understands
There’s something makes us more than blood and bone
And more than biological demands.
For me, love’s like the wind unseen,
I see the trees bending where it’s been
I know that it leaves wreckage where it’s blown.
I really don’t know what ”I love you” means,
I think it means ”Don’t leave me alone!”.
