Last Verse for Her...

I can see where Neruda was coming from while he was writing this poem. It is very hard to get over someone you have been in love with. Some people do not know what to do to make the time pass during this process. For Neruda, it seems he expresses this pain through his writing. He talks about the pain he feels after losing a loved one. He states in the first line that "Tonight I can only express the saddest lines" showing that he has only one thing on his mind and that is his lost loved one. He talks about some of the memories they had together and what joy it brought to him at the time and the pain that it causes him now. He talks about the passion he once had for this women and the loneliness he feels now. Although he is experiencing all this pain now, he lets it be known through his last line of the poem that this is the last time he will suffer. "Though this be the last pain that she makes me suffer and these the last verses I write for her.
