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

Here is a new rose named after her. I was happy and lucky enough to get one for my garden! It smells lovely as well.

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.

@Stargazer13 she seemed sophisticated and savage at the same time

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.

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.

@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.

About love - beautifully characterized!

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 ❤

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.

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

Never heard of her. But love this. Thanks!

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 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
