I Do not love you except because i love you

By: Pablo Neruda

I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire.

I love you only because it's you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.

Maybe January light will consume
My heart with its cruel
Ray, Stealing my key to true calm.

In this part of the story I am the one who
Dies, the only one and I will die of love because I love you,
Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.

There is no reason behind loving someone, it just happens.
There are times where you love the person and then you really don't love them.


The speaker is waiting for the person to love them back. The speaker goes from feelings of wanting to wait until they love them back or give up.
There are times where the speaker does not feel anything at all for that person to feeling very passionate about them.
The person the speaker is talking about does not return his love, so the speaker has no reason behind loving her other than the fact that he does love her.
The speaker is trying to tell himself that he hates her but in reality his "hate" for her only makes him love her more. He knows that loving her is only causing him pain so he try's to change his feelings towards her.
Changing his feelings towards her means that he must not see her anymore. Although he can not see her he still loves her.
The speaker is thinking that with the winter coming that his feelings will be frozen and dwell on him much like everything surrounding him. The rays (of the sun) represent hope which will not come for him during the harsh winter.

January could be symbolic for the month that she went away or did something to make him feel like there was no hope left for them.
He is the one who is suffering a great deal and feels as though he would rather die than to be without the one that he deeply loves. At this point he realizes that there is no hope left for them to be together no matter how much he loves her. He feels as though his love is already been fulfilled and that he will be able to love no one else.
He will love her no matter the circumstances. Whether it be while he is alive and it burns in him like fire or while he is dead because of loving her so much.
