Poetic License – December 2010

Poetic License is that part of Morning Erection that allows me to showcase some of the great poets that I found in my travels throughout the Internet. I have found that by posting works by other bloggers often brings more traffic to their site and that is a good thing. If you missed the first Poetic License, please check it out.

Each month I will share seven poems with you from other bloggers, mostly from the WordPress community and one from myself. If you like poetry, I hope you come back each month for more! Beginning in January Poetic License will be featured on the first Monday of each month.

Be advised that I am looking for sensual, sexy and erotic poems for February since it is the month of love. If you write or are aware of someone who writes such poetry, please let me know whom.


A New Me
by Ms. Peaches

Revelations of realizations
Make me see the realities
Of what it means to become
The greatest me that I can be
Blessing unknown obedience
To the one up above bring me
Full circle to a place I once
Previously started but now
Again I head back in that direction
Only I move forward without
Haste or feelings of judgment
From ones who know nothing
Of what it is that makes me me!

If You Were You
by Shannon Schaefer

If you were a river
I’d be your canyon
Holding you close
But letting you run free

If you were a wave
I’d be the moon
Pulling you in
When you need to crash

If you were you
And if I was me
I’d love you forever
Just wait and see

If you were a carrot
I’d be your dirt
Keeping you safe
And helping you grow

If you were a pencil
I’d be your paper
Giving you a space
To tell your story

If you were you
And if I was me
I’d love you forever
Just wait and see

Times when you’re dark
I’ll be your light
Brightening up
The whole night sky

Times when you’re unsure
I’ll be your certainty
Adding exclamations
To your question marks

If you were you
And if I was me
I’d love you forever
Just wait and see

Raindrop Memories
by Desiree

Our clothes were soaking wet
From running through the rain

Still he kept smiling
And kept on dancing
Raindrop memories to never forget

When the rain passed, so did he
But the footsteps he left
Will always remain

But even though it looks
As rain has faded
It’s never ever really gone

And so
I’ll keep running outside forever
Waiting for the raindrops
To wet his hair
To drench mine as well
And kiss my cheeks
Like I wanted to kiss his too

Within Heaven’s Arms
by Charles Wm. Martin and Toni L. A. Cross

this child that you see
cannot cry again
nor wait for promises
to be kept
alone in the dark
shivering for fear
a blue map of bruises
pale tender skin
holding an old doll
as ragged as her dreams
praying to a god
known only from a tv show
god, please make me good
so my momma won’t
be mad no more
sorry i’m so bad
but as she prayed
an angels voice whispered
my dear child you did
nothing wrong at all
she snuffled her tiny nose
and blinked blue watery eyes
her shivers skittered away
like mice into the corners
she could not believe her eyes
for in front of her kneeling near
was the glowing  form of an angel
whose voice was soft and clear
be it a dream
or substance of light
her life was changed
in a moment that night
for the angel caressing with wings of white
said softly rest now my child
have no fright for tomorrow i shall
show you such wondrous sights
the way things should be
all wrong made right
beauty pulled out of pain
tormented souls made whole and sane

One Thousand Hearts
by Adrienne

I want to make you smile even when your frown seems permanently set in place
I’ll pour all my love into you until all the pain in your heart is erased
Without truly knowing or questioning why
I find all the answers right there in your eyes
I could try, but I could never find an understanding more clear
Then the understanding between our souls that draw us here

Even in September through all the fall, winter, and spring
Your love makes it feel like summer
through all the Joy and warmth you bring
To feel your lips as sweet as honey suckle against mine
It stops every thing around me, literally every second in time

You illuminate my world brighter then the sun could ever be
More precious  then any jewel, star, or stone to me
I wish I could love you with the love of a thousand hearts
I’d fill them all with you every part
But I hope the one heart I have will do
Because no one will ever love you the way that I do

After You
by Prinsesa Musang

The rain fell earnestly as I go back to
the door that opened the room I had left
for so long, for fear and uncertainty.
I cannot see you.
There is nothing here but empty spaces,
and I let out a small sigh,
both of frustration and satisfaction. You had
always been my despair and my delight.

The silence, and coldness, that I see here,
coming back now, wreathed around
me like a long lost friend, as I see myself
reflected in the mirror we put up ourselves,
tiny, and broken as the last fragments of the mirror
fall into a crash… and I see the real me
pretending to be strong, pretending
what happened was not real.

My Invisible Scars
by Callmeams

You made me promise not to tell
All the time you put me through hell
Made me feel like it was my fault
Made me ashamed that I didn’t make it halt
What about your promises broken
Some aloud and some unspoken
To love and protect me and keep me from harm
It seems everyone was blinded by your charm
But I know the truth behind your lies
I see the sinister in your eyes
You I love and you I hate
To others I can no longer relate
Torn asunder, my soul battered
My scars invisible, like I never mattered

Vastness Of Space And Time
by Tom Baker

Devoid of form
Dark and foreboding
It’s massiveness is beyond infinity

Spherical brilliance the way light travels
Celestial wonderment
Quantum leaps and gravitational bounds

Stars a billion here and a billion there
A billion galaxies; nebulae, stars, planets
Rocks will declare the glory even if you won’t.

    What a information of un-ambiguity and preserveness of valuable know-how concerning unpredicted emotions.

      Robin, I thank you! Your poem will be featured in May I believe and if it weren’t for you allowing me to use it, me finding your site would be in vain (other than me reading a great poem)!

      I do like this feature too. It’s just time consuming finding the poetry every month. I have managed to get all the months up to April already finished! There is something special for everyone who had poems included these past four months on January 3rd.

      Thanks. I’m glad you like them. It sure does take quite a bit of time finding and then getting permission to use them — but it’s worth it. I’m glad you stopped by.

      Thank you Blaga. I think I try to make some pages look more like a webpage and not just a blog, or did you mean the graphic?
