Enigma [en] – Federico Barreto


You are an enigma with no answer,
of all woman you stand out in manners,
no-one can tell whether you hate or love,
on your chest shall be written down: Who knows!
You’ve got the same amount of fierce as mild,
one day you kiss and then you hurt as wild
What do you truly want, expect, desire?
All this mystery, reason can’t inquire!
I wish I could forget you, but I can't;
I'd like to abhor you with all my heart,
but you’re the only one to whom I’ve loved.
I enjoy gazing at you, I wish not.
Forbidden fruit of mine, you are, dearest!
You give me life, you’re my ruin witness!

– Federico Barreto
