Lets talk about loves that are oceans deep with waves that sweep us off our feet , and the golden sand on which we land ...hand in hand, heart to heart smile015.gif

"You deserve a lover who wants you disheveled, with everything and all the reasons that wake you up in a haste and the demons that won’t let you sleep. You deserve a lover who makes you feel safe, who can consume this world whole if he walks hand in hand with you; someone who believes that his embraces are a perfect match with your skin. You deserve a lover who wants to dance with you, who goes to paradise every time he looks into your eyes and never gets tired of studying your expressions. You deserve a lover who listens when you sing, who supports you when you feel shame and respects your freedom; who flies with you and isn’t afraid to fall.
You deserve a lover who takes away the lies and brings you hope, coffee, and poetry."
Frida Kahlo

I am 46 years old, and I can honestly say that I believe that I have never been truly loved by a man. They wanted me for selfish reasons, or to turn me into what they wanted me to be, or weren't willing to love me enough to fight for me. I learned a long time ago that if I don't love myself, no one will, lol.

For everyone who says they don't understand what she saw in Diego... this poem is what she saw. She wrote this from experience. Her love for Diego was epic and his for her. @Stargazer13 perils like this are written from experience, there totally are people like this. The ones who say "good luck finding this" will never because they're closed off from magnificent things. Keep your heart open girl ❤

And I love your heart, pepperjones! Thank you ! I agree. I promised myself long ago to never let my heart harden, but to remain open to the wonders of this life and of love smile015.gif

@Stargazer13 me too girl! Steer clear of naysayers, they'll never experience what we get to ❤

I know for a fact that this happens when couples are deeply in love, I know that this poem isn’t all a fantasy. My mom once commented after my hubby died, that my beloved and I were on a thirty-eight year honeymoon, she was right, I adored him and he me.

I would look for all that if possible. Why not?

Looks like she had a uni-brow but plucked out the middle. Nobody's perfect I guess.

I will say again.. It's a freaking poem. Can't we just enjoy the thought of it without being all negative. Geez. I wasn't posting this as some guide to an ideal for everyone. I will say though if you feel undeserving of anything special, well good luck with that...

@Stargazer13
Undeserving? No. I just think that whole kind of perspective is a little childish. To expect any real person to behave the way that poem portrays a person to behave is completely unrealistic. This is pure fantasy. Real people don’t behave that way.
A more realistic poem would be the following:

@Gatovicolo wow, SMH. Thanks. You have a great day !!

@Stargazer13

@Gatovicolo It is evident by this manuscript that there was little to do during Medieval epochs save write if one could & avoid starvation & the plague. Remarkable.

@Countrywoman
Actually Sir Orfeo was based upon Orpheus, but they exchanged the underworld for the world of faerie. It seemed appropriate: fantasy for fantasy.

@Gatovicolo and Sir Orfeo gets a happy ending unlike his classical counterpart!

@Geoffrey51
That’s true

I love the photograph.

That's a nice dream but totally unrealistic and a recipe for desaster. Only your own inner peace will save you. Looking for an answer outside yourself will always disappoint.

I didn't post this as a recipe for an ideal view of a relationship. Its poetry.

@Stargazer13 l quite agree. The nonsense is getting out of hand. Poetry sheds light and illuminates what CAN be, not what is!

What a hottie. A passionate lady in her art as well. I remember reading this once before. Not sure what she saw in Diego....maybe art. He possibly brought her coffee and poetry

None of that is true, of course. Women tend to judge men by themselves, with eyes misted with romance, while men typically pursue the hottest, youngest women they can manage to seduce.

Both she and her husband Diego Rivera carried on numerous affairs, and Frida even had affairs with Diego's mistresses, and American painter Georgia O'Keeffe. Her husband had an affair with Frida's sister. They divorced and remarried and continued having affairs.

I don't judge people's choices, especially after they are gone from this earth. I do love her words, however she came to them is no concern to me. We are all saints and sinners at junctures in our life according to the world's standards. She was an artist that happened to paint a picture for me with this piece of writing. Its pure romance and I am sure there are some among us who have actually had love experiences like this, or wish we did. It may not be "true" for you, but it doesn't mean its not beautiful to consider that we could all deserve to feel what she was trying to convey. If one feels that men "typically" pursue the hottest and youngest to seduce then this wouldn't resonate. You can call me misty eyed if you want. I'm fine with that.

@Stargazer13 It's weird that most women have this Disney love view, in view of reality. But it seems to be necessary for cis hetero women to have this view, for them to actually MARRY a man. They have to see them in a romantic light, and be blind to reality.

@birdingnut OK then. My original post was POETRY. Lots of reading between the lines going on. Oh well, to each his own !

Never heard of her. But love this. Thanks!
