Once upon a time on a Greek island far, far away, a lesbian poet named Sapphos entertained beautiful women and wrote them love poetry.
That island, Lesbos, is where the word lesbian comes from. Yes, this poet was so amazing that she coined the term for women who love women.
Next time you’re in one of these situations, sext Sapphos’ poetry to your lover and watch them melt at your feet.
When you know that you and your girlfriend are #RelationshipGoals:
You may forget but
let me tell you
this: someone in
some future time
will think of us
When you finally have a one-night stand with your crush:
All the while,
I prayed our night would last twice as long
When a girl is hitting on you:
Mere air, these words, but delicious to hear.
When you see your crush for the first time:
And she outshines the Ladies of Lydia
as the rose-fingered moon at sunset
surpassing all the stars
When you want to call your ex but have nothing to say:
What cannot be said will be wept.
When sex with your crush isn’t as great as you imagined:
You came, I yearned for you,
and you cooled my senses that burned with desire
When your girlfriend says, “It’s over.”
I just really want to die
She, crying many tears, left me
When you’re tipsy but want to blame your tipsiness on love:
Once again Love, that loosener of limbs,
bittersweet and inescapable, crawling thing,
When you know she’s a player:
No honey for me
if it comes with a bee
When you thought your ex-girlfriend changed, but you were wrong:
Love is a cunning weaver of fantasies and fables.
When she gives you four orgasms in a row:
I will let my body flow like water over the gentle cushions.
When you don’t have money but you still have love:
From all the offspring of the earth and heaven
is the most precious.
When your mind’s telling you no, but your body is telling you yes:
I do not know what to do –
My mind’s in two.
When you need your love to stand and face you and scatter the grace in her eyes:
Stand and face me, my love, and scatter the grace in your eyes.
