About Passion’s Pleasure

I have been writing from the time I could string sentences together and started writing poetry at about 14 or so, while at secondary school.  I was introduced to it during my English Literature class and fell in love with it. My first poem was called The Students’ Lament and it poked fun at the entire school – from my classmates all the way up to the principal.  I read it out to the class and had them gasping for air from laughter.

I thought to myself, “I might have something here.”

I have written for love, written in pain, written for worship, and written just for the heck of it all.  I love writing:  I used to say that if I never got married I’d marry a semi colon; it’s so curvaceous … yeah, I’m a nut like that.

Before the wonder of the Internet, I had my collection of poems typed out in a Word document – but then came the fateful day when cruel fate snatched my muse and stabbed her in the heart with a power spike – in one second, I lost all my documents on that hard drive – including over a hundred and ten poems.

Since this blog’s creation, I have transformed from a shy guy who expressed himself only through his poetry into a confident spoken word artiste, boldly seducing audiences through sensual poetry….

I was just Bajanpoet here …  but I have become The PassionPoet … or Passion, for short.

I enjoy painting word art with carefully placed strokes of my fingers, tenderly stroking the mind of my audience with either my voice or my words on my blog.  My blog is no longer just a repository of my work so that I will not lose it if a power spike occurs again – it is a treasure trove of powerful emotions: grief, joy, loneliness – and, of course, sensuality.  The blog is going through some changes to reflect my passionate nature…

So, dive in – you will not regret it!

These poems are all written and owned by Robert Gibson / PassionPoet, and plagiarism will not be taken lightly…

  2. Hola Bajan, I see we have something in common. I can’t say that I knew I had a penchant for writing, but I like to write and I’ve continued doing so. Thank you for all your comments. I appreciate them. As I have time, I will definitely peruse your work. It’s open house at school today, I’m here until 7pm. ¡Hasta pronto!

    Thanks so much for subscribing! I appreciate your support! This blogging is new to me, as well as, sharing my writing, but it’s been fun and a great learning experience! I love your work, too, and the semi-colon comment cracked me up! I also agree with your feeling on grammar! Anyway, I’ll be back soon! Thanks again! 🙂

  7. Hello Bajan,

    It seems we have a lot of similarities, I started writing at 12/13, I lost over 100 poems (but thankfully I was able to recover my hard drive) and I edited a friend’s story!
