Poetic language is way of expression (many times using metaphors and similes) bringing the inner meaning of something. 'I like her, her interaction brings happiness to me' is a factual statement. Poetically this can be 'she is like a morning sun bringing light into my life' or 'if my life is a song, she is the tune for that'. Hey, I am also writing poetry
In another way, a good poem can touch the heart and bring out the inner feeling from the readers.
Poetic Language is the totality of the characteristics of language as an instrument of artistic expression and an object of artistic perception; synonymous with artistic (literary) language. The term “poetic language” is sometimes applied to verse speech —that is, to literary language that follows the rules of verse. In a narrow sense, “poetic language” or “poetic speech” refers to the specific language of poetry before modern times (for example, ancient Icelandic and classical Persian poetry), which used a vocabulary, phraseology, and syntax that were rarely encountered in other kinds of speech.
Poetic language is one which is full of expression and captures attention. It has power to express the emotions with which the poem has been written. Usually similies and metaphors are used but their are other means of making poem expressive too. In day to day life peole do not use poetic language because it has deeper meanings which need to be given time to understand.
Poetic language is the language most often (but not exclusively) used in poetry. The key is that poetry is much more compressed than fiction (short stories or novels for instance). Since the language is denser in a poem, the word order is so much more significant. For instance, a poem and a short story may both attempt to convey the the beauty of nature, but the poem will do so in three stanzas while the short story will do it on three pages. To get the same point across, the poem has to rely on a number of techniques that will evoke emotions in a reader. These techniques are called poetic devices and may include rhyming, metaphors, similes, etc. Unlike fiction, poetry or poetic language does not have to follow grammatical rules, which allows readers to sort of unpack the poem and make meaning. Through the use of poetic language a poem is often more intense emotionally and also more open to interpretation.

A language which soothes the mind, stimulates the nerves, agitate the body is a poetic language. A language , though importing different meanings to different guys, yet delighting them all.
Poetic language is a magic created by words. It has the capacity to throw the readers into a trance. It may be an ordinary language ; yet not ordinary in its effect. It can be very divine too, as we find in some sacred texts.
This is the language which defines the whole emotional rollercoster in just few lines or sentences even it is able to express things more on logical manner but in a subtle way that it touches the heart and open the nerve connection to mind.
A poetic language must have rhythm and stanza length, this will allow you to fully express your feelings and emotions throughout your poem: Sometimes people find it easier to wright a short poem with one paragraph, but for others; poems can be explored by using stanza length and have as many as six paragraphs. Longer poems would be a good idea for exploring the poetic language of your poem.
