Poetry is the expression of self! Yes, that is the epitome of any art form. Not done properly it can be seen as selfish. The truth of it comes from being almost completely introspective. The trick then is to take what you see inside you and paint it onto the world in a form that is universally familiar and not just centralised to you. With that in mind we can say the true measure of artistry is in the creator's ability to give perspective on the world as projected through their eyes. As we take in these very personal emotions there is a thread that allows us to broaden them to ourselves and our experiences. That being said, I am happy as I put these words down to know that you as a reader will draw something worthwhile from it. In reality, if my "ART" paints a brighter picture, a smile or even a new path for any individual then that is the cliched reward.
You set the price!

Words have a way of triggering mental images, emotions and physical reactions. Sex, just happens to be one of the most talked about and thought about words in our vocabulary. With its many synonyms it is an inescapable part of our daily speech. The act the word describes is no less embedded into our lives.
