Born in the land where “The Kamasutra” originates, I have never taken eroticism lightly.
Even though sex is one of the most basic needs, humanity still shies away from talking about it.
With this book, through my poems I urge you to tastefully feel, visualise and just enjoy something that comes naturally to all of us. Enjoy the image depicted with each poem to enrich the surge of emotions you will feel!
Another journey, another path, discover some more of your emotions and let love flow through…
“Enigma is a compelling book that will make you see love making in a mind-blowing way. A decent, elegant, erotic book with nice poetic content well put together by author – Chriselda Barretto. A perfect book celebrating quality time with one’s mate!” – Debb

****A journey through love, lust and passion!
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I got this. I do enjoy poetry I rather enjoy all different genres of writing. I am definitely a lover of words with that out of the way I will leave you with my thoughts on Enigma: Erotic Soul Poetry.
This book was sometimes more interesting than exciting, but that did nothing to lessen my enjoyment of the collection. These poems are about sex — every strange, beautiful, passionate and awkward aspect of sex. That doesn’t necessarily make them ‘sexy’ though. Some where more passionate than sexy. These poems brought you into the mind of the lovers depicted in each poem and allowed you to envision the love and passion between them.
I loved just how many different niches of the human sexual experience are represented here. Each poem is to be enjoyed and judged individually. Every piece tells it’s own story while keeping within the theme and style of the book overall. It’s too hard to choose one poem which stands out above the rest, I do have a few that I enjoyed while there was a couple I really enjoyed. One of the ones I really enjoyed was Mirage. While some of these poems stood out more than others they where all unique and enjoyable. If you enjoy poetry and the expression written within it’s words you will enjoy this title.

It is one of the most natural things in the world, but so many of us – myself included – find it so difficult to talk about. It can be so hard to bring up to your partner what you like, what you don’t like, and what you expect from intimate experiences.
The poems within Enigma by Chriselda Barretto takes you through so many different perspectives on the human sexual experience, many of which you will relate with and others that you will contemplate on. The poems are not smutty, but rather more beautiful, which mirrors the beauty in the connection between two people. The poems kind of showed me that there is no real need to feel so awkward about sex, it is a beautiful thing that can inspire some really beautiful poetry.
This is not Fifty Shades of Grey, it is so much more subtle and relatable. Wonderful prose and an amazing concept. I really admire Chriselda Barretto for encouraging people to be more open about sex.
4.0 out of 5 stars

Tender plucked petals
Roses and embers
Smells lingering on my body
Encaptivating my mind of only you
Warm breath of moisture
Trickling on my tongue
Burning my mouth
Filling a salt laced cloud
Those gentle licks of lavender
Lost amidst the throes of my mind
Fields of daisies wherein we cuddle
Fed with the spoils of your passion
Eat you, eat me, let’s live without decree!
Fill me with thy sprite of a lover
Lips forming words so warm and tender
Graciously merging our anticipated needs
Creating a unison bearing our seed!
Gently start but waves follow fast
Earning what was thy goal at last
Minutes of warm measure filled in batches
Heightening the mild into deep, erratic scratches!
Thy will be done as always intended
Me now a meager handful of you enlightened grid!
Erotic poetry enhanced by art, this makes a fine gift to a loved one. Grady Harp, October 19
