As humans, misinterpretation is often the problem to our problems. We see and we judge so quickly and as a result, we miss out on a lot. This month’s featured artist is an author and poet who dominates the romance and erotic realms of writing within Barbados. However, for years now, his work has been misjudged as something that it isn’t and persons tend to shy away from it. Could it be because of the sexual nature and content? We highly think so! Sex was and still is a tabooed subject for many in Barbados. However, pay attention and have an open mind because we are going to share the facts and a side that many may not know or understand because truth be told, he is an extraordinary man.

At age 40, Robert Gibson is indeed an unmatched poet who inhales words and exhales poetry and we’ve got the story to his journey. He is a man with words of fire to take you higher so sit back and enjoy this trip as we introduce you to the one and only, PassionPoet.

Robert R. Gibson better known as PassionPoet, is one of Barbados’ bravest and most captivating authors with his EroticEmpire collection that has his fans wanting more. Take away the fluff and all of that artificial stuff because when it comes to writing captivating erotica, Robert gives it to you direct and quite frankly, it may leave you wet. His words float right off the page and straight into your imagination, as if you were centered in the heat of the action.

With multiple 5 star reviews on amazon, multiple interviews on BlogTalk Radio network and a US, Kenyan and Barbadian fan base that says he never disappoints, there truly must be something special about his work. His journey dates back to the year 1992 when he wrote his first poem at age 14. At the time, he was a devoted Christian boy and respectfully, he wasn’t allowed to have sex before marriage. One could say that Robert’s devotion to Christianity as a young lad is what led to his beguiling works, as he explored the world of writing to exorcise the temptations of a young teenage boy going through puberty. Writing was his way of expressing his thoughts and to keep his feelings in check but little did he know that those early words would propel him into the crafty and soulful poet that he is today.

As the years went on, young Robert continued to write and to pour his soul into his poetry. He soon found himself writing poetic pieces for critique and feedback within the League of Extraordinary Poets (LXP). It was then when he was challenged to write a piece which described his poetic gifts in the form of a superpower. Oddly enough, Robert came up with the name Passion. But as always, humans did what they do best and judged him and laughed at his name, saying it sounded like he was an exotic dancer. They didn’t understand why he chose such a name but Robert knew exactly who he was deep down. He was a poet with a passion! From that moment, he pieced the 2 terms together and never looked back. Robert was now PassionPoet.

To this day, Robert still goes misunderstood and unless you have read his work, you are probably still thinking that his books are all about sex. However, behind this friendly face is a man of character and a man who writes with a purpose. PassionPoet believes that the female body should be celebrated and praised. His work is a platform for them to be adored and to be worshiped! He doesn’t agree with the way in which females are viewed as sexual objects today and for that reason, he tantrically celebrates sexuality in verse.

But how does he captivate the minds of so many readers? Robert takes you on a compelling journey that makes you think by grabbing your attention from the absolute beginning with word play, luring you into the plot and then maintaining your imagination with suspense. Take for example his latest novel entitled MAKE IT RAINE, a Barbadian based novel, which tells the story of a performer who ends up getting one of his fans pregnant and must then sacrifice either his old promiscuous ways or the opportunity of being a responsible parent. With many unexpected twists and turns along the way, he pours all of his emotions into his words with the aim of stimulating your mind. When you read his work, you are to feel the passion and desire put into it and just like a powerful climax, Robert never comes up short. In fact, he is a lexical perfectionist with words of fire and heartfelt desire.

His first ever book entitled EROTIC was a collaborative effort and his maiden voyage into writing erotica. It featured other mentionable Barbadian authors and poets such as Shanika Thompson, Mariposa Reina, Michelle Hinkson-Cox and DJ Simmons, to name a few. After his first book was well received, he decided to spice things up and experimented some more as he gave the public his second book, SEDUCTION. Unlike EROTIC being merely the foreplay, this one was indeed the steamy climax.

Robert then went on to continue his versatility by writing 2 ebooks entitled OFFERING and QUOTES OF PASSION. Within the first, he diversifies his writing style into haiku, senryu and sonnets and created 20 poetic pieces. Within the other, he pieced together snippets to form a delightful transcendent collection.

Robert is a man of many words but they don’t always come in the written form, Although he hates to memorize his poetry for live performances, he absolutely entices his audience and always has their imaginations peaked. He is no stranger to Barbados’ NIFCA (National Independence Festival of Creative Arts) and has rightfully claimed the Most Promising Poet incentive award back in 2011, among many other silver and bronze medals (see video below).

What makes Robert different? Within conservative Barbados, he proudly stands behind his brand knowing that despite the sexual content, he produces nothing but quality. Despite the views of the masses and unlike other authors who hide behind fictitious pseudonyms, PassionPoet knows his purpose. He writes to celebrate Creation, he writes to celebrate Divinity and sensationally, he binds sensuality with sexuality to celebrate Womanhood!

Outside of the literary arts, he is a father of 2 boys, an IT professional by day and a lover of travel. Just be sure to give him the window seat as he has nothing but a bright future ahead. So there you have it, the one and only PassionPoet or better yet, he is Robert R. Gibson, a performer, author, editor and poet with a Passion! We salute you Robert!
