Poetic License – May 2012

Welcome to the new Poetic License. From now on Morning Erection will focus on one poet and four of their new poems. The poems you read today are being featured here and are presented to the world for the first time anywhere.

Safaa is only 18 years old but puts words together like a seasoned lyricist. She is from East India and loves art, music, and as you will read in a moment, she is fluent in poetic verse. I have fallen in love with her poetry and I know you will as well. You can find more of Safaa at her blog, the Dainty Damsel.

My Prince Charming

Anxiously waiting for thee I am for so long,
My eyes are looking for thee in this lost throng.
When wilt thou ever come in my life’s road,
Any sign of coming till now thou haven’t showed.

My bosom’s desire is secretly fading away,
Just to be with you forever in my life’s way.
Thinking now I am that me a girl so hapless,
Not even a glimpse I have seen of thy face.

I am in love with thee but I don’t know who thou art,
Thou remain like waves of bliss in the depths of my heart.
Who in my worriment to me thou so lovingly caress,
And snatch me from the clutches of pain who harass.

When I am all alone in this difficult path,
I feel thy presence forever in this cruel earth.
Thou hold my hand and along with me ahead go,
And lead me to the doors of happiness where ecstasy thou show.

Only god knows when in reality thou wilt ever come,
To sow the seeds of excitement in my life so humdrum.
My heart and mind so small but my hopes are so many,
To see thou opening my world of love and bliss, oh honey!

Never Want To Say Goodbye

Blankly staring at the roving sky,
I know not where to go and die.
Feeling helpless and so morose,
Faded and lost like a dead dried rose.
Still I search for those warm sun rays,
And the revealing of various ways.
To get back to my simple normal life,
Away from all the dumb worldly strife.

‘Cause I don’t want to lose you if this way I die,
As I never want to say you goodbye.

Those moments we shared through eyes,
Are now flashback of pain in its highs.
Falling into the deep groove to end,
Now have no reason to get mend.
Still I patiently wait for my silver lining,
Above in the dark clouds so shining.
To stitch those light rainbow days,
So that life for a moment halts and stays.

‘Cause I don’ want to forget those memoirs gone by,
As I never want to say you goodbye.

With love in my heart I asked for you,
For a life-long beautiful blossoming yew.
But I got a response that tore my heart,
My course ended before its start.
Still I feel you’ll come to me one day,
‘Cause my love is not less than the powers of a fay.
I knew it was you ever since you touched my core,
Your feelings with me I have in store.

‘Cause I know that day isn’t far when with me you’ll lie,
As I never want to say you goodbye.

A life-long patience got so brutally killed,
In the painful poundings of my heart’s mill.
I have lost hope and faith in love,
As there’s no more a boat to rove.
Still I think I gotta give my best trial,
Who knows my life may get tuned with a clock dial.
So carrying within me that same dead hope,
With all my love and your hate I cope.

And so with my full effort I’ll still so try,
‘Cause I never want to say you goodbye.

A Little Love To Brew

Dancing in the black tempest,
With a wild heart I’ll kiss you.
Soaking every drop of rain,
A strong little love will brew.

With the storm thundering away,
I’ll hold you tightly in my arms.
With the clouds laughing away,
I’ll make your world full of charms.

A striking thunderstorm fierce,
And the wind blowing in its full might.
Will make you feel my love for you,
As I’ll be clutching you so tight.

I’ll hold your hand giving assurance,
Of forever love and togetherness.
You’ll look into my eyes with a hope,
And a life-long faith you’ll get with no stress.

Seeking solace you’ll stay back with me,
You’ll know there’s no world without us.
I’ll give you the world’s best feeling,
With a naughty mess and a little fuss.

A lightning brighter than the sun,
Will strike us down from dust to dust.
Yet our love will remain alive,
In this black tempest, on the earth’s crust.

Neither death nor life can keep us apart,
As our bond is stronger than the strongest power.
Our togetherness will remain alive,
As blessings of Eden on us shower.

I so wish for this day to come,
And all it’ll take to make this true,
Like the music of a guitar strum,
Is a strong “little love to brew”.


Like those loud music beats,

And vacant empty streets,

The course of our lives,

Is full throws of strive.

The fall of a giant,

May not be a matter faint,

But the bruises with blood,

Teach us to survive the flood.

The boat with a narrow hole,

May in its way down-roll,

But it teaches us to fight,

The current waves so might.

The scorching fireball rays,

May block our blind ways,

But they teach us to see,

In dim lights of life with glee.

The strong heavy downpour,

May flood our big ocean floor,

But the drops give us strength,

To live our life a long-length.

The fierce lightning bolts,

The earth crust it moulds,

But the burns teach us to feel,

Those happy moments we steal,

Our successes and failures,

Our desires and stay-lures,

And their crashing ends,

Teach us to all soft pores mend.

The broken heart pains hell,

We scream, groan and yell,

But it makes us realize the truth,

Of a patiently-willed hope fruit.

Huge lessons we learn to survive,

In all odds and evens to strive,

And life has it immense to give us,

So an orchestral symphony it is thus.

    Just checking in on ya Tom, wondering what’s erecting presently. Love poetry,. What a nice idea to devote all this space to verse.

    • #2 by Tom Baker on June 5, 2012 - 6:39 AM

      Susannah, how are you and how is blogging treating you? I’m doing well and keeping up with blogging can be taxing. I do enjoy it though. I’m glad you like Poetic License. Do you write much poetry?

      • #3 by Susannah Bianchi on June 5, 2012 - 9:00 AM

        No, more an essayist. Love blogging since I get to write daily. Treat it like a job. It’s great. Love your site, admire the effort you put into it. It’s wonderful and awe-inspiring. Hope your hand is better. SB

    Dainty Damsel, you have left – pieces of your heart – on the pages where you start – expressing from your depths – careful with your tender love – lest it fragile flies above – leaving you to mend the hole – where there now abides your soul… (Thank you for sharing – with a readership so caring!)

    • #6 by TheStm198 on May 8, 2012 - 3:01 AM

      Looks like you too write awesome poems! Anyway, sharing with you all is a pleasure I’ll most cherish! Thanks for reading my poems and understanding their depth. :)

    A wonderful collection!

    • #10 by TheStm198 on May 8, 2012 - 3:03 AM

      It only became more wonderful when people started liking and appreciating it. Thanks!

    Aw man I can’t say I liked the first poem – the thee’s and thou’s are very forced :( I have to admit…I judged too soon. The poems that follow are beautiful and wonderful! It’s very different from the types of poems I prefer, but it works. I wish I could make rhyming look so effortless.

    • #12 by TheStm198 on May 8, 2012 - 3:05 AM

      I agree with thou and thee being very forced! But I was kind of reading some Shakespeare’s books so used it in my poem! Shakespeare affects a lot you know! But anyway, I am really glad you loved the rest of the poems even though they are different from the kind of poems you prefer. Thank you! :)

      • #13 by prysmatique on May 8, 2012 - 9:56 PM

        I’m an English major and Creative Writing minor, believe me, I get you. My first attempt at a Villanelle was laughable at best. I really did love the rest of them! Shakespeare’s a wonderful influence lol.

        • #14 by TheStm198 on May 9, 2012 - 2:52 PM

          I agree with you totally!. Even my first attempt at Villanelle was really stupid, I tried Rondeau it all went well. I hope to improve. :)

          • #15 by prysmatique on May 9, 2012 - 4:31 PM

            Haha yeah I haven’t written a Villanelle since that required one for my Creative Writing class :P It was fun but I hate being forced into structures.

  8. #19 by ambrosiapeyton on May 7, 2012 - 8:54 AM

    They are all spectacular however I have never been in a relationship so My Prince Charming is the one that tugged at my heartstrings the most. I just love that poem.

    • #20 by TheStm198 on May 8, 2012 - 3:06 AM

      Yeah, My Prince Charming is kind of related to my life too. So I can understand your feelings. :) But thanks for reading it and relating it with your life. :)

      I totally agree with you.! :D

  11. #25 by Noel Ihebuzor on May 7, 2012 - 3:39 AM

    Prince charming – a great poem to a lover unknown! Sympony – a wonderful pep talk to to confront the balls and curves that life hurls at us! A little love to brew is full of huge promises over flowing with love.

    • #26 by TheStm198 on May 8, 2012 - 3:09 AM

      You understood every poems depth and that’s a great thing for me. :D

    Fine poems! I loved the most “Symphony”! Thank you Tom for featuring Safaa’s work!

    • #32 by TheStm198 on May 8, 2012 - 3:14 AM

      I wrote Symphony because I thought if all the poems would be about love it would become a bit boring. And I am really glad you loved that one. :D Thanks a lot.!!
