Dear Sappho,

It seems like the human race has devolved since your time on the planet. Heterosexuality was not compulsive and the arts flourished. Now we have global warming, mass violence and corporate greed destroying the fabric of our society. You didn’t have guns and now guns in the US kill 30,000 people every year. Please tell me how you see humanity surviving into the future.

Your Brain In Love and Intimacy

Beautiful-Heart

 

Dear Sappho,

I know I am in love with another woman. It seems like every song is to her, every thought I have is of her, and I can’t stop these lovely feelings, nor do I want to. The problem is she does not express her feelings easily. I don’t know if she fears intimacy is incapable of intimacy or just doesn’t feel the same way I do. Do you have any insight on love and intimacy and the difference between them?

Sappho and Erinna Lesbian Poets

sappho-and-erinna

Sappho is currently visiting her friend Erinna, a fellow poet on Greek Island of Tilos in the Aegean Sea archipelago. 

She hopes you will like the poems below written by Sappho and Erinna.  Erinna was a fellow poet, peer and friend of Sappho’s in 4th century BC Greece. Erinna was also considered to be a Lesbian and Mytilenean because of her close association with Sappho although she hailed from the neighboring island of Tilos or Telos.

I Dedicate this Song to You

music-love
Dear Sappho,

I recently amused myself by compiling a play list of all the love songs I have ever had with all of my serious lovers. I then asked my girlfriend, not for the first time, what her song with her ex was. She told me again, she couldn’t remember or doesn’t know. I was flabbergasted, how could she not know “their” song after more than 10 years of living together.  Either she’s very discrete, diplomatic or completely unsentimental. I have even had songs for women I have just had a crush on. What criteria do you use for picking a love song and how come everyone doesn’t have one?

Celebrate World Kiss Day

Dear Sappho,

World Kiss Day is July 6th, I loved your article on National Kissing Day last year. I was just wondering if you have anything new to say about kissing this year. I am a kissing aficionado, though far from the expert I’d like to be. Any tips would be much appreciated.

Emotional Fulfillment

maslows hierarchy of needs

 

Dear Sappho,

In spite of being in a “successful” relationship and having a few really great friends, I can’t get over the fact that something seems lacking in my life. My partner and I are happy going our separate ways and returning to home base. We have love, acceptance and mutual interactions and support, but something emotional is missing and I’m not sure what it is. We love each other even more than ever. Yet, I am an emotionally unfulfilled woman. What are the expectations for emotional fulfillment?

Gay Pride, Self-Esteem & Jealousy

pride

Dear Sappho,

I always look forward to Gay Pride Month because of all the parades, parties and gay events that promote pride and acceptance. However, my girlfriend seems to dread them and says it’s because she is jealous of all the beautiful lesbians who make her feel less than beautiful. I am a quasi-gay activist and find it difficult to understand why she fails to get the celebration.

Proud to Be Out

 Map-of-Lesbos

 

Dear Sappho,

I recently heard that Sappho was once exiled from Lesbos. Why was she in exile? What are some of the political and social dynamics that influenced her life and her poetry?

Why I Left You

broken heart

Dear Sappho,

I read your post My Girlfriend Left Me with great interest being guilty of such a departure my self, I’d like to tell my side of the story. I left while you were at work to avoid the drama and the hurt. I left you because you acted like our relationship was a burden to bear instead of a joy to be savored. I left you cause you couldn’t hear me any more, it was like talking into the wind. I left you because I felt lonely when we were together. I left you because you didn’t take our relationship seriously enough. I left abruptly to keep the cut clean and your memory of me sharp.

You want to know why I left you?  I left you for asking why - instead of knowing why. I left you because I love you too much to make you suffer my neurosis and expectations about love. I didn’t mean to hurt you. I just wanted to wake you up. I didn’t realize you’d go on to fall in love with someone else so quickly. Now that you have, I’m sure I did the right thing, although please know - it did hurt me as much as it hurt you, please forgive me for hurting you.

break up

Dear Sappho,

I thought my lover and I would be together forever, (so far 10 years.) She recently asked me to marry her again. Last week she left me while I was at work. The night before we made passionate love until midnight when she asked me to make her a favorite meal in spite of me having to be at work 7 AM the next day. While I was at work she called three times and begged me to come home early. When I arrived home that evening I thought we had been robbed, then I realized that only her stuff was missing. She left me an eight-page letter telling me how much she loved me, was in love with me, and wanted to remain monogamous. I don’t believe her but I desperately want her back. I am confused, angry, and I need some advice, the pain is incredible and I’m not sure how to proceed.
