Frida Kahlo

posted by My Name is Love 20 April 2017

One of the most inspirational personalities of all times is Frida Kahlo.  We all know Frida Kahlo the painter but she was an equally mesmerising poetess.

Truth is, so great, that I wouldn’t like to speak,
or sleep, or listen, or love.ùù
To feel myself trapped, with no fear of blood,
outside time and magic, within your own fear,
and your great anguish,
and within the very beating of your heart.
All this madness, if I asked it of you, I know, in your silence,
there would be only confusion.
I ask you for violence, in the nonsense, and you,
you give me grace, your light and your warmth.
I’d like to paint you, but there are no colors,
because there are so many, in my confusion,
the tangible form of my great love.”

Her style of expressing so much tenderness with so much pain and idiosyncrasy is captivating. Frida Kahlo gave such insights on Love, that it changed the whole meaning for the readers.

There is so much to explore and write about this wonderful woman that we will keep going back to her for inspiration. For now I am leaving you with some more fascinating words from her. And she said……..

“I’d like to give you everything you never had. But not even then would you know how beautiful it is to love you.”
