Written by: Sonnet XVII, by Pablo Neruda
Read by: whoisjeremyward?

I don't love you as if you are a rose of salt topaz
or arrow carnations that propagate fire
I love you as one love certain obscure things
secretly between the shadow and the soul

I love you as the plant that doesn't bloom
but carries the light of those flowers hidden within itself
and thanks to your love the tight aroma
that arose from the earth lived dimly in my body

I love you without knowing how or when or from where
I love you directly without problems or pride
I love you like this because I don't know any other way to love

except in this form in which I am not nor are you
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine
so close that your eyes close with my dreams

Valentine: To love is to destroy.
Jace: You love me, so? I love you, too, Alec.

End Note: Oh, how I wish iMovie allowed for better coloring or stopped doing those crackling noises!
