Frida Kahlo | I'm not asking you to kiss me / Non ti chiedo di darmi un bacio

I'm not asking you to kiss me,
nor apologize to me when I think you're wrong.
I won't even ask you to hug me when I need it most.

I don't ask you to tell me how beautiful I am,
even if it's a lie, nor write me anything beautiful.

Diego Rivera (Mexican, 1887-1957)

Diego Rivera, in full Diego María Concepción Juan Nepomuceno Estanislao de la Rivera y Barrientos Acosta y Rodríguez, (born December 8, 1886, Guanajuato, Mexico—died November 25, 1957, Mexico City), Mexican painter whose bold large-scale murals stimulated a revival of fresco painting in Latin America.
A government scholarship enabled Rivera to study art at the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City from age 10, and a grant from the governor of Veracruz enabled him to continue his studies in Europe in 1907. He studied in Spain and in 1909 settled in Paris, where he became a friend of Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, and other leading modern painters.
About 1917 he abandoned the Cubist style in his own work and moved closer to the Post-Impressionism of Paul Cézanne, adopting a visual language of simplified forms and bold areas of colour.

Love letter from Frida Kahlo to Diego Rivera | My night / La mia notte, 1939


Lettera di Frida Kahlo Diego Rivera,
Città del Messico, 12 settembre 1939
Mai spedita!

La mia notte mi strema.
Sa bene che mi manchi e tutta la sua oscurità non basta a nascondere quest’evidenza che brilla come una lama nel buio, la mia notte vorrebbe avere ali per volare fino a te, avvolgerti nel sonno e ricondurti a me.
Nel sonno mi sentiresti vicina e senza risvegliarti le tue braccia mi stringerebbero.
La mia notte non porta consiglio.
La mia notte pensa a te, come un sogno a occhi aperti.
La mia notte si intristisce e si perde.
La mia notte accentua la mia solitudine, tutte le solitudini. Il suo silenzio ascolta solo le mie voci interiori".
"La mia notte è lunga, lunga, lunga.
