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…
