My Review of Erotic by the Passion-Passion5poet Robert Gibson himself and friends.

Erotic does exactly what the poetry of Robert Gibson and his friends and collaborators describes. Writing poetry about the feelings and sensations encompassed in the very physical love between man and woman, Robert bares his soul to the world. There is nothing dirty or snigger-making about his exquisite verse, which is the product of a man who is totally in touch with his emotions.  Robert Gibson is a man unashamed of his love for a very special woman in his life. Erotic is modern day love poetry with no punches pulled, with the passion of love openly revealed. His poems show a man in love with words and woman.

From the bewitching pleasure of his gorgeous sensuality in “Invocation” to the heart-warming and very sweet “Missing you,” Robert shows the full depths of adoration that can co-exist with carnal love. He rises above the flesh in “Heavenward” and “Galactic” before diving back into the carnal intimacy of “Craving” and “Cooking.” The seductive passionate poetry in Robert Gibson’s book “Erotic” provides a reminder that we all could do with a little more passion in our lives.

Before reading the book you would do well to takeEROTIC OFFICIAL BOOKCOVER FRONT FINAL WEB VERSION note of the warning he has placed at the beginning of the book.
