Provided are poems that I have written in different formats and using varying styles of presentation.  Each one is unique and each one has a semblance of its own.

length can vary between 8 lines and 19 lines. For epics requiring more then 19 line, I will require a detailed storyline about what you require.

themes: epics, melancholia, human nature, poetry, romanticism. No erotica. Dedications can be done. Eulogies can also be arranged.

Bear in mind that I am not a schedule driven poet. You will be notified during the drafting process, so that you can monitor the progress of the poem you commissioned from me.

I can complete one poem at a time.
Critique
For any work which you like but want an opinion regarding its nature, understanding, and its presentation.

You will be provided a note containing a detailed analysis over what I thought about the work - only you will be in the knowledge of this critique (unless you ask otherwise).

Hi! :wave: My name is Shehroze Ameen.

I'm at present working in the following groups:

:groups: :iconpoetrynprosewatchers: - Founder - A place where all your :+fav: get exposure. Do give it a look :)

:groups: :iconpoeticalcondition: - Head of the Critique Department - send a :note: whenever if you want to apply as a critic to me, prettyflour or Michel-le-fou . For more details, see this journal: Critique Department Update: Critic Openings!EDIT: Duties of Critics have been added in this notice. Thanks fernknits for pointing that out. Appreciate it. :)
Hey Everyone! My name's shehrozeameen and I recently became the new Head of the Critique Department of PoeticalCondition.
This was an administrative decision taken by our boss RiseandBe. I'm succeeding NotenSMSK, who started the critique department. A gem of a boss honestly - punctual, very dilligent in his approach, and particular about how the department was being maintained. Suffice to say, life is more than dA in the end.
Me and NotenSMSK keep in touch outside of dA, so rest assured he's doing well and is in good health - but he's become busy post-graduation due to a job and other non-dA related exercises which require his fullest potential. It was a mutual decision from all three sides.
And thus, ladies and gentlemen, I have something big to tell all of you:
WE HAVE OPENNINGS AVAILABLE FOR NEW CRITICS! :nuu: :squee:


:groups: :iconthecritiquables: - Second in Command - a place where you get critique in exchange for critique given to members :heart: . The rules are provided in the unappreciated journal features posted every month. Come on over!

:groups: :iconevery-photo: - Staff Critic (now promoted to Co-founder) - Yes, photography critic as well. :heart: in case you ever have any photographs which you feel require attention or are outstanding, don't hesitate to send me a :note: .

What else.... I love :dalogo:. If you need somebody to :+devwatch:, or need someone to talk to about something, :note: me. but if your serious about progressing forward, I'll do my level best to help you out in any way possible...

Looking forward to what people feel about my works :)

Type of Commission: poetry (though epistles are also included)
Number of commissions done: five
 
From the commissioner:
I love writing poetry, frankly speaking. I can write a poem between 8 and 19 lines. Provided that the theme has been carefully told by the customer, I will send drafts of my progress as often as I can. I can write in both traditional and non-traditional formats.
So far as traditional are concerned, I am not particularly good with sonnets, but I have a decent assessment of syllable count. I don't follow meter. Having said that, I have written terza rimas, rub'iyaat, villanelle, ottava rima, triolets, blank verse, and quatrain style poetry.
So far as non-traditional formats are concerned, I would like to be t
and its only for 20 :points: (my cut is 16 :twocents: , if you want it in real life amount).

Don't hesitate to go :typerhappy: when you wind up looking at my works :) Cheers.


shehroze ameen's Personality Type Results
Interests
Hey everyone :iconchez-lolplz:

So its me again, and well, things have been good thus far. What I've been doing outside of dA is... well:

  1. Applications for Masters Programmes outside Pakistan. For that I got my
    1. Updated CV - the whole rebooting of it, at that.
    2. Two Recommendation Letters, with one more in the pipelines but unfortunately haven't gotten round to it yet :iconchezpalmplz:
    3. Paid bookings for GRE and TOEFL this August - got their Books too (Using KAPLAN and Barrons for GRE)
    4. Transcript
    5. Passports
    6. And I only need to get the bank statement ready, and get an acceptance letter from the universities. That of course, will take time and will start after I submit the applications :iconchez-rollseyesplz: God, this is so going to be one fuckload to handle.
  2. Helping Mom out with her NGO. nhsd-pak.org/ <---- that's the link if anyone's interested. So far, we're now handling a few new projects in Bannu (IDPs from Waziristan) for Reproductive Health. Its going good. Mostly help her out with the documentation process since the team's doing a decent job there.
  3. Packing because this Eid I'm going to (drums) LAHORE!!!! :iconshezyayplz: :D Lovely city, ladies and gentlemen - I'll be there from Monday to Friday, so in case anyone has anything they'd like me to critique I'm sorry that I won't be able to get back to you :( . Honestly. For those of you who might not know about Lahore here's a thumb. Happy reading: 


  4. And I have a title for a poem ready, but I'll work on it later. There's also a long blank verse as well, but that'll be for another day. Its my own fault really - I should procastinate less, and work more on it :shakefist:
Now, lets get something out of the way: The Feature header :dummy:

Feature


forum.deviantart.com/community…

Most of you are familiar with that, but today's going to be a list of people with changes: The first two were intentional, but the rest were added via random.org. I have to thank :iconladylincoln: on this one, since it was her poll which got me into this "thing".

So, here's the list:

:iconnotensmsk: and :icondannymechanist:

Since I missed out you two from the last (gigantic) list, here's a feature from my side (partly as an apology, and mostly as an dA Eid gift of sorts ;p ).

NotenSMSK is resident critic here on dA for :iconthecritiquables: , as well as a poet and prose writer most of you might be familiar with. As an editor, I think he's a definitive inclusion in anyone's search for proof-reading of works, and even in sharing ideas in how a plot or even a character can be used effectively. That's my opinion of course. But frankly speaking, opinions are awesome :dummy:

DannyMechanist , however, is a wonderful friend. Granted, I don't exactly treat him in the most considerate way that a friend should, but he's still a wonderful friend. Granted, I say things which are quintessential :iconchezwhaaplz: but meh, its still all good. So in case sweet poems, with a touch of melancholy is your choice of themes, then his poems are right up your alley.

Now, with these two... No, hold on a min

 and 
 for DannyMechanist

and

 and 
 for NotenSMSK

Now, from the random.org list I have the results of names for people here on dA I am familiar with (or know personally) in a numeric list. So I go to Random.org again, and select integer randomizer, to get 200 randomized numbers between 1 and 202 (double randomization :P ) through random.org again, so now I have the following results (numbers are as the sequence indicated):

189. :iconpoppyseedz:

She's fun to hang out with, is a decent writer in my honest opinion (She can write in both English and Polish), and her quotes series are cute, in my opinion anyway. I'd definitely give her works at least one glance, because they're - relative to her age - well written, and do have something to offer - a smile, or even food for thought.

36. :iconserenecyrene:

A really good poet, and even more than that she's a good reference too. Be it for poetry terms for critique purposes, or be it dermatological applications of fruits and vegetables, she's affable, amiable, and her cheerful disposition is in itself a very good quality. I recommend giving her poems a read. As well as her prose.

135. :iconparsat:

Parsat is a significant influence for me. At least so far as the May Sonnet Challenge was concerned, his personal invitation to that challenge generated my most affluent (deviations wise) month here on dA. With that said, he has other works in his gallery as well - free verse, rap lyrics, even really good academic journals talking that are a thesis on Chinese in general. I recommend giving that particular journal a read (considering that I can't find it).

116. :iconraymondminnaar:

Because his paintings are so bad ass I swear. Bar none, the most bad ass painter I've ever come across here on dA.

24. :iconladymortimus:

Because she's a good poet as well as a good short story writer. Although she isn't that active here on dA, her works do give a significant degree of thought. They are written well, in my opinion.

95. :iconsystemcat:

I don't always get her works, but they are fun when I look back at them. They're nostalgic reminders of dA when it was changing to HTML5. When sta.sh was being introduced, mind you! And comparatively speaking, that's now a long while back. Its a good memory, and I cherish it.

64. :iconmakotm:

Because you're new and you're going to be given a comment on your works when I have free time in August. For sure.

40. :iconpauper-circumstance:

Because you're a good writer, and I'm glad you got mentioned in this randomized little collection. Cheers, bro :)

96. :icondeetay:

Because you're a major support for many people here on dA, and to be honest with you you're a really good writer yourself. I'm glad you're here on dA. Honestly.

77. :iconpascal-prevost:

Because your poems are the most controversial works I have ever come across. And at the same time they're well written compositions of French. Honestly.

98. :iconsammur-amat:

Because you're fun. Honestly. There's no doubt there, and there shouldn't be :)

127. :iconseven11art:

Because her drawings have shown significant improvement in my honest opinion, and at the same time, she's showing a growing maturity in her work. As a friend though, she's fun to hang out with, and she's really awesome to be with.

131. :iconinkclaw88:

Because of dA nostalgia.

2. :iconeclecticquill:

Because he's everyone's right hand man, every girl's "Other" guy, and every writer's jealously guarded Barney Stinson represented in real life. Although I forgot one thing in the bargain: Dovakhin as well ;) (No, seriously, he's a bear of a build). When not writing poems, he's just hanging around on dA and doing memes and just being the friendly dude everyone likes - the rogue everyone wants to be, but doesn't become.

128. :iconsaltwaterlungs:

Because even with her WIPs, she manages to deliver. That's my opinion, really. :)

60. :iconknifapotamas:

Because you're a new person I've seen here on dA, and you get mentioned here for being new. I have to look further into your works, and I'm genuinely looking forward to what I find. :)

I could add more to this list really, but... it wouldn't be much of a randomization if I'm just going to include everyone now, would it :P I like the list I made, and I have no complaints about it. Its there.

Oh, now for works which I have come across recently here on dA:

 
 
 


Now, to second header:

Works from my side:


I haven't written much to be honest, but for those who are interested, here's some works you could look into:





which I personally like, to be honest.



which sadly... just leaves me wondering about what everyone's opinion is about this work. Its not that good, but I suppose it couldn't have been better.

Personal (important!)


Advanced Shoutouts to the following:

:iconlynnae-madison: Happy birthday!!! Have a good one! :)

:iconpaulvongore: Happy Birthday! :) I hope you continue to post photographs on dA, and I hope to keep in touch with you whenever you do. You're a wonderful photographer, and its good to have you around.

:iconbaconette: Happy Birthday! Keep writing, keep posting here on dA, and lots of luck and well wishes for your commissions and efforts for years to come. Stay strong, because your awesome.

:iconimaginative-lioness: Happy Birthday :) You're a good writer, and a good photographer as well. Keep posting. Cheers.

:iconirrevocablefate: Happy Birthday! :) Stay awesome - you do a wonderful job as a CV and I'm glad you're on dA. Stay blessed.
Hey Everyone :wave:

I owe everyone an apology for the lateness in my replies. I have to give 69 replies and get back to two mentions on a work. But with that said, life's good at my end.

In case everyone's still interested, ya'll remember the - *ahem* - "motherfucking thesis" yeah? I'll be submitting it on Wednesday or Thursday. So I'll be free from uni once I do that :woohoo: And honestly I am happy about it. I'm finally done with my BS and can move on to other avenues. Sadly, I'll have to give the GRE, but hey - better to give a GRE, then live with my parents till I turn forty (I felt like rhyming - judge away :lol: ).

So, before I begin, lets get a few things out first:

Tag


Diluculi Questions:
  1. When having an appointment, do you usually show up too early or too late?
    I try my best to show up early. And often do so as well. I only tend to be late when I'm dependent on someone else for a lift or a drive.
  2. How many languages to you understand (not necessarily speak)? 
    I manage a little bit of French (using wordreference, and a French dictionary that I have), Urdu (I read and speak Urdu, even though as an Urdu speaker, I'm very rough and coarse and make significant tense, gender, and word errors), German (German uncle), Arabic, and a very limited understanding of Latin (phrases or sentences at best).
  3. Imagine I spontaneously decided to visit you for full 24 hours, what would the day look like? 
    Depends on the location. I either spend most of my time in my room, so it'll be artificially lit by fluorescent lights - or I spend most of my day outside the house in the shops and city center (which means there's going to be summer weather, but winters here are nice too).
  4. What is The One Thing you want to have done before you die? 
    Have one published work which I have written, I suppose.
  5. If your house was on fire and you could save only one single thing or person, which/who would it be and why? 
    Persons, actually. My family. Get them out of the house, and then die with the house itself.
  6. What's the thing you currently possess for the longest time? 
    Books, surprisingly - I do have Lego toys as well, but I don't consider them as significant a part of my life.
  7. If you could bring back a dead person for about 12 hours, who would it be? 
    No one.
  8. When meeting a person for the first time, do you immediately associate a song or movie (nothing else) with them? 
    Surprisingly no. It takes me a while to actually define one song for them, to be honest. I say surprisingly, because everyone has a tune which matches them - I've met assholes who suit good old fashioned metalcore/Slayer-sound thrash metal; while there are girls I've met who fit the morose, serene mood of "In The Mood for Love" the movie's theme.
  9. Do you consider yourself to be a generally good person? 
    I do my utmost to be; although, frankly speaking, I'm not "that" good a person, per se. I have faults and flaws.
  10. Go through the alphabet and list a musical instrument (in your native language) to every letter without looking them up (but you may go back and forth). What does the list look like?
    (laughs) I hate playing musical instruments, and I only like hearing rather than knowing how the sound came to be. So... I'm not doing this :dummy: Strikethrough!!!
Radiant-Intention Questions: 
1. What is a song that you would use to describe yourself? 
None in particular really "describe" me to be honest. I prefer leaving this question out in the open for everyone.
2. What is your favorite way to exercise? 
Stretching, occasionally running, Walking and Massaging... Man's best friend is his left hand, after all.
3. Read a book or go to a party? 
Book all the way. I hate parties.
4. Bike or run? 
Bike preferably.
5. What is one trait you can self-identify with? 
Being honest? Being awkward? Making people go "what-the-fuck?!" or "huh?!" ? Making a girl bite her lip without actually knowing it - or blush, whichever you'd prefer? Not being able to get a hint?
6. What is your favorite poem? 
shehrozeameen.deviantart.com/f…
Find any random poem in this list.
7. How much water do you drink on an average day? 
In the summers, two glasses in the morning, nothing in particular in the afternoon, and then about four by night. I'm always dehydrated when I reach home.
8. What is your favorite season and why? 
Winter - suits my melancholic and romantic ideals. Plus I identify with snow and snowy terrains more than meadows and "green" environments.
9. If you could live in any historical era, what era and why? 
It varies significantly with my moods. I'm not fixed to one age. Although with that said, I guess I'd go with either the Crusades or the Victorian/Edwardian era (1857-1942) specifically to British India.

The Crusades: Plague, Leprosy, and Warfare on one side; courtly debauchery, politics and intrigue, and a dedicated environment for the patronage of the arts on the other. Although with that uncertainty in mind, I'd like to see the environment in which everyone spoke the Latin tongues, and there was this atmosphere really well described in the works of that age. Its suitable for my more... "violent" tendencies.

The Victorian/Edwardian era (1857-1942) specifically to British India: It was an adventurous era. Plus, it produced the literary giants of this country. Post-1942 India was all chaos, plain and simple. Plus, after 1947, the decay started.
10. Who is your role model and why? 
My parents.

Right, now on to other things:

What else...?

up by Knifapotamas

I loved Up the movie, and this work is a really nice tribute to it. Funny enough, the red hues suited this work. For those who have seen the movie, you'll recall that the movie was very vibrant in its colors. Here, surprisingly, I think that the choice of red, white, and blue makes it feel more... it isn't warm, but rather, empty. You know that last scene in the movie, right? Its as if the house is represented mid-flight, as if it won't be able to return to its original location, yet it might not even reach its new one. Which in a way, does good - I think its does a good job.

Landscape. Autmn by korlyuk

I think that this landscape shot was well taken. That's more or less all that I can say about it - its atmospheric, granted, but I feel that anything said further will ruin what it is: A well balanced, well contrasted, decently balanced brightness, and ambient shot.

Fleur by amandinezoli

Personally, I was genuinely in love with this painting. I absolutely love how the drawing has been handled. I simply adore her expressions. And what's more, I think that this work really does deserve credit where its due: particularly where the shading is concerned.

For those of you who might not know:

Triumph against failureI hear the cries of the damned calling me out
Noodlot is here, its mark leaving no doubt
Those who were meant to live, are now gone, forsworn
Its seeds here leave behind decay

There is still hope, there is a way
I carry that hope, on my back 'tis borne
Those who were meant to live, are now gone, forsworn
I hear the cries of the damned calling me out
It knows I am here, I must win this bout
Stay and fight destiny, or to flee and hide
Is it something with which I can abide?
Time is running out for me to choose what to do
Do I have the courage needed?
To not make this choice I pleaded
All my pleas remain unheeded

Time is running out for me to choose what to do
Stay and fight destiny, or to flee and hide

There is a lot of it.
Well hello 2014, my don't you look nice and new and fresh and just started. What do you mean 2014 is half over?! WHAT. WHEN. WELL, EXCUSE ME.
If you have not realized by now I'm a little crazy about news. I mean really, who gathers news spanning half a year and compiles it in one handy article? Me, that's who. Why? Because I love news, especially Lit news, and you. You beautiful, glorious creature; with that beating heart and ugh, your facial region just ugh, gorgeous. Oh right, I should stay on topic. [But you! How can I leave youuuu?!]
Anyways, this is the first part of the article series "LIT me explain u a thing" chronicling some of the things dA's Lit Community was up to in 2014!
Tell me when you're prepared, I'll hold your hand and we'll get through this article together.

Also, please :+fav: this to spread it along because my sanity depends on it. No, really.

I still remember the feeling I had when I posted my first features articles: I really wanted to share my favourite art with all my friends, supporters and watchers. I received several compliments and praise for my features articles therefore I definitely can't stop doing them. :) (Smile)
I'm aware I might miss some unknown artists that need more exposure, and I'm sorry for that. I'm doing what I can to please all of you, and please me as well. 
I hope all of you have a great week so far. Summer definitely came back, and mosquitos too. Crying  Feel free to note me if you ever wanna talk, about anything. I'd love to share my stupid stories with you. Anyway enjoy this 15th wave of features. Make art, not war. 
See you soon! Hi!

  The Ladies of Lit: Volume XLIVWelcome to volume forty-four my Literature series, The Ladies of Lit!
The premise here is simple. Below you will find an assortment of Literature features from a selection of female deviants here on DeviantART, all of them suggested by you. In this article, you will also find a variety of other things of interest, including:

  July Festivity: DeviousnessWelcome to July!
Everyday, we encounter extraordinary deviants who remind us why we are present here within the community. I feel that it is a blessing to have the opportunity to be amongst those who greatly inspire me on a daily basis – I know I have expressed this often in my journals and comments – but I simply cannot articulate it enough. This community has given so much in my nine years – friendship, support, trust, utmost care and most importantly: love. Oftentimes, as I reflect on how I have traveled along my personal path during my DeviantART journey, it is then I realize the truest magnitude of the things that really matter: the individuals and the heartfelt joys shared amongst us.
There is a rare beauty reflected in watching an artist grow – seeing them come into full “bloom,” and knowing that one’s played an important role in it on many levels. It is exciting having that special place where you can reach out and know you make a rare
  Kick ass Portraits- A Feature- Part III think the title says it all.  Here are some of my favorite portraits taken my some talented deviants.

and what else...?

yeah, that's about it really. Cheers :)

I have wanted to leave a comment for you, but never had the right words.
I wanted to thank you for the kind comments you leave. Including the last journal I had posted, but ended up deleting.
I cannot express how I appreaciate your kindness towards. Along with neglecting to do so. Thank you very much, and I hope you have a a wonderful day. 8)
