Robert R.Gibson (PassionPoet or Passion, for short) enjoys painting sensual images with his words, leading his audience into a sensory experience. Although sexuality and sensuality are his main forte, in his own words he says, "Passion is not always about sex." Passion is anger, sorrow, enthusiasm - his poems are written to evoke intensity. He has been writing from age 14 and has self-published five books – anthologies of erotic and sensual poetry called EROTIC and SEDUCTION, collections of shorter, poignant poems in OFFERING and QUOTES OF PASSION, and his first novel, MAKE IT RAINE. They are all currently available on Amazon as Kindle ebooks, with EROTIC, SEDUCTION and MAKE IT RAINE also available as paperbacks.
In 2011, Robert entered the National Independence Festival of Creative Arts (NIFCA), the national arts festival of his native Barbados with three poems – Luscious, Rain, and Goblet. All three of the poems achieved awards – Luscious received a silver award, and Goblet and Rain received bronze awards. He also received the Most Promising Poet award for the year.
In 2012, Robert entered NIFCA again and one of his poems – Tribute – received a bronze award. Again, in 2016, Robert entered NIFCA and his poem Naniki: Frank Collymore Hall 2016 received a bronze award.
The winning NIFCA entries have been published in the Winning Words anthology produced by the National Cultural Foundation (NCF), the producers of NIFCA.
Another one of his poems Tribute (A Call to Action), which was inspired by the documentary Cultures of Resistance, was highlighted by the Cultures of Resistance producers on their Facebook page.

About his book, MAKE IT RAINE
Do you want to have a walk on the wild side in the Caribbean?
In MAKE IT RAINE, Barbadian performance poet Raine is a sensual writer who loves to seduce women with his words. He plays with their bodies like he plays with their emotions, and has no problem bedding his fans. Until he gets one pregnant.
Jasmine was introduced to the erotic poet Raine and went to check him out after rave reviews. He skillfully wove a spell of lust around her with his words, and, in a moment of spontaneity, she gave him an invitation he couldn't resist.
Now they're locked in a battle of wills.
Will Raine man up and take responsibility for his actions or will he continue to be arrogant and self-serving, unconcerned about the life he brought into the world? Will Jasmine finally get the man she bedded into her heart? Will they live happily ever after?
