Cancer: A Self-portrait and a Poem

Self-portrait with necklace (1933), Frida Kahlo, born 6 July 1907. WikiArt

 I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, 

in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms

but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;

thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,

risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

From Sonnet XVII by Pablo Neruda, born 12 July 1904
