Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell

On my many wanders around the internet I have stumbled upon either this poem or quotes from it which have been wrongly attributed to Frida Kahlo.  It's since been blogged and reblogged through Tumblr with the wrong name attached. There's something heartbreaking in a poem about losing your identity to a lost-love losing its true poet along the way.

Tumblr is always getting quotes wrong. Don't even get me started on all the "Marilyn Monroe" quotes out there. This is a lovely poem and it was actually perfectly fitting for my current situation...

I know! I don't really like quotes taken out of context anyway - let alone when it's so far from its original context that they're attributed to the wrong person!
