Wonderful! The chaos of love, the paradoxal meaning that love kills and
give life to lovers...
Reading it, I understand that more and more I need go on with my beloved

love is what kills you and keeps you alive.. paradox in itself, it is the
meaning and the means..

I love this poem so much. I read it for the first time right at this
moment, and I cannot agree with it more. I wish I had a love like this, and
that my love was as true as this poem.

i adore this poem, idealistic though it may be! i am amazed by his blatant
acknowledgement that love is life, and that love is a paradox, and so is
life. his examination of the whole idea of love is so utterly moving that
though i don't quite understand it all, i can feel! and i am deeply moved,
and propelled to LOVE!

wow. i couldn't agree more with this poem. i think my favorite part is
the last 5 lines. i think they in particular are perfect at expressing the
true nature of love. this poem says to me that love is a complicated
thing, it can drive you crazy, yet it is what keeps you going in this

I think this poem demonstrates beautifully the blantant chaos of love; the
intrinsic need we all have to feel loved and accepted.
I think it also displays so well the conflict, the innate dichotomy of
beastiality and sensuality, the icing sugar of love and the dank and
insatiable depths of raw instinct.
I see it touch also on the other dichotomy-- that love would not be love
without this sense of ferity, that it takes two contradicting parts to
create a whole, which ultimately, touches on all human nature.
This is the most beautiful poem I have ever read. It speaks to me in so

wow..it seems to me that this poem is telling us just how important love is
to cummings that although many things in the world upset him, he is
prepared to die for these reasons but wouldnt dream of it if it meant he
could no longer feel the bliss that comes with the emotion of love..
