6 am Poetry

Forgiveness

Drops of water sliding down my hand

Lines of age running down my palm

Mingling thoughts of joy and pain

Where did they go to,

all my years, those since I was born?


Tears welling up into my eyes

The pain I caused, the hurt I initiated

Was it retaliation, ego or just my pride?


Did I seek forgiveness, or did it not matter?

For I was the king of my very own parlour!


Here we are then, at the road’s end

Shouting out loud, but nobody hears

For I am too weak to even speak!


One last sigh then, one last try…

If it’s all the strength I have in me

Hear me whisper out like a lashing sea

“Please, please forgive me…”


A poem by Chriselda Barretto

Our Dance

Dance with me in the moonlight

Take my hand

Curve my spine with your hand a-slight!

Swirl on the beats

Gently but strong following the feet

Maintain the lines

Forming a whole is what you seek!

Lengthen the step

More complex it will get

Free the spirit

Unleash your regret!

Take this dance further up

See those eyes around you stare

Awe and spellbound, will they dare?

One step to the next

Clear the way, this is a concept

To lead so they follow

Into the depths so hollow!

A Great Tool to Be More Open About Sex

October 23, 2019

Format: Paperback

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.

Enigma – First Review

Read Between The Lines (Oct 12 2019)

****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.

Moss

Apologies I offer thee in advance
Shedding any hindrance, maintaining my superfluous balance!


For now I shall commence my irrevocable dance
Cursed being, you lost your golden chance!


Shame not in sight, this is my win
Dirt is meant for you, a horrible cringe!


Sorrowful and doomed your existence
No more need for even a simple sentence!


Go about your way, our paths never again to cross
The ultimate fulfilment is to leave behind you, an undeserving rotting moss!

SHORTER

Description

Frank Zappa once rightly said, “so many books, so little time.” In this busy life, it helps to keep things short, simple, and sweet. The 3 ‘S’ Theory!

“Shorter” is an anthology of some of my short stories and poems, weaving together unique narratives and multiple thoughts into one absorbing collection. It is playful, evocative, and emotionally complex at times. Exploring the grand absurdity of life, it will make you question logic and the real essence of it! Each story or poem is different with the common thread being my style and expression!

“Barretto has mastered multiple forms of poetry, but her talent of expression is what impressed me the most.” – Susan Violante
