Half The World - Poem By Cathy Nerujen
Half the world is sweetness,
And half the world's in fear –
See your eyes, they sparkle
And your lips are drawing near.
Half the world is blinded –
But half the world can see me –
And like the stars that float above –
Your eyes so soft and dreamy.
Half the world is watching -
The other half’s asleep –
Your lips and tongue they take me –
A Hundred Kisses deep.
Half of us forgiven now,
But half of us are punished –
I pour my heart out on this page –
Now half this poem is finished...
Half the world is floating –
But half the world is sunk.
Your passion – my immersion –
Like potion I have drunk.
Half the world’s been poisoned,
The other half is healing –
You trace a rivulet of skin –
This ecstasy I’m feeling.
Half the world needs loving,
While half the world it pines –
It longs for “Love’s Attention”
As part of God’s Designs.
Half this world has crushes –
And then half of it is smitten –
And although this poem’s finished now,
Only half this love is written.
"One half of the world does not understand the pleasures of the other half."

Cathy Nerujen continues the cinematic Narcissus love story of nymphs and Gods started by Maggie May, A.A. Zavala, Nikki Jordan and Kallini. Greek characters, set in modernity only now with Zombies.
A love seemingly as impossible as seeing a meteor in the sky one night, and yet very real. A meditation on a heavenly sight that parallels a love for an amazing person.
Ecstasy and Love shared by two kindred spirits. A joyful jaunt of words about love that is found, and romance fulfilled across the miles. A dream waking into reality, as told by poet Cathy Nerujen.
