Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion; it is not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. But, of course, only those who have personality and emotions know what it means to want to escape from these things. ~ T.S. Eliot
Poetry: An expression of emotions.
Emotions: The generic term for conscious experience.
Consciousness: A state of awareness of position in time.
Awareness: The ability to perceive. The ability to feel.
Perception: Integration of information from the five senses.
Gray Matter makes up a portion of the brain responsible for perception, awareness, consciousness, and emotions. This is one individual’s expression of conscious experience. Stories of one journey.
