“Together” by (All Rights Reserved ©) Robert Gibson: Passion Poet

Robert R.Gibson  (PassionPoet,or Passion, for short) is a member of the League of Extraordinary Poets (LXP) in Barbados and 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 is aiming to have his first anthology of poems published soon.  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.

Tortured soul stripped –
painful strokes snowballing;
life not throwing curveballs,
but cat-o-nine tail whipping.

Each new dayanother trial
worsethan the one before
Slave master sharing blows
making scorched skin sore.

Life’s lashes rain down
flayingexposed skin
Abuse on top of abuse
Soul’s tender flesh wealing

Wailing cry assaulting
the crispy morning air
Each circumstance another blow
Soul trembles in naked fear

But – wait!

Surprisingly, slave girl gets loose
No timid girl, she –
The searing pain ignites the warrior
within her tiny body

She bucks and fights with everything
Not willing to give in
to life’s abusive lashing blows
She must survive– and win!

Whenever warrior lands a strike
Life rears its ugly head
and comes right back with another blow
tryingto knock her dead

But suddenly a Savior
steps boldly into view
and starts helping warrior girl
to beat down and subdue…

Together, the combined pair
matchLife punch for punch
until Life – weakened from the fight
buckled, with shoulders hunched

Now sexy Saviour faced the dame
and started to caress her
he tended wounds and made her swoon
They’re facing Life together

Slave no more, once frightened girl
was shown a different life
A world that actually was quite calm,
without the pain and strife.

Romance bloomed fast between the two
as the pair connected
feelings of love grew fast and full
Lost desires resurrected!

Now Emperor and his Empress
The two walk hand in hand
And when Life tries to take revenge
the pair fight back – they stand!
