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.
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?
