Love Sonnet XI by Pablo Neruda

Posted by Siobhan Barrett on



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,

lingerie model

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.
