I Want A Me And You - Poetry By Cathy Nerujen

I Want A Me And You

So can you wear that dress for me?
The floral blaze - thigh high -
the sleeveless night-time deep sea blue -
the tidal wave tie dye -

Can you share with me this sunset -
as I steal from you these glances -
us walking on this shoreline -
so full of hope and answers -

Can I put these flowers in your hair -
you gentle, soft and slim -
my arm around your waist so tight -
the daylight soft and dim -

Kalanggaman Island, Leyte, Philippines

Can I walk you home on cobbled stones -
the street kids dancing round -
the air so hot - and full of life -
Pampanga's full of sound -

Can I whisper you my feelings?
Should I dare to say its name?
Can we both say what we're thinking, Fehl -
you feel it - just the same -

Your eyes are angel fireworks now -
you smile - and sparkle out -
your hands are warm - and tight in mine -
you make me want to shout -

Can I share with you these kisses?
I've kept them for so long -
they're sweeter more than Hershey's
I'll even write a song -

we scaled these city walls so high -
we climbed the highest peak -
we mapped and walked upon these slates -
and made their meaning speak -

Can we meet again tomorrow?
Can we do it all again?
Will love be more than ever?
And never let it end?

Can girls like us be lovers?
Can life be fair and true?
Can families come together?
I want a Me and You.

This poem is dedicated to my beautiful Fehl Dungo, an amazing poet and blogger, who writes as blaise25 on HubPages and as twentyfive. I love you so much, Fehl.

Hi Nikki -

You are the first commenter and thank you, you get hugs for this. :)

I have more poems coming and some are rhyming and others non-rhyming. Typical me, I vary it a bit. Oh you never had a guy or anyone ever write a love poem for you, Nikki? Or any kind of poem? Really? Are people blind and can they not see what an amazing woman, and person and friend you are?

Oh wow, now I really want to give you a big warm hug.

Here is a short poem for you by me:

LadyCam

"She takes her camera - she set the frames -

she points to shoot and slowly aims -

she sees it close - she stops to stare -

she never saw one with so much hair -

she pulls and pushes - hands move fast -

she smiles and presses - makes it last -

till finally - she nods and says -

"The zoom lens works! Oh glory days!"

She runs and loads it on her 'puter -

she never saw one look as cuter -

She goes back, smiles and hears soft whines -

those pealing, begging, mournful pines -

she opens up some meaty chunks -

such juicy meat - such meaty hunks -

she kneels down closer - squatting better -

then feeds and pats her sweet Red Setter. "

Oh in this poem you are photographing a dog called a red setter, okay? it is similar to a Spaniel, which is also a lovely dog. :)

Hehehe. Well, now you can say you had a poem written for you, Nikki. I chose red setter because I had a red setter when I was younger and she was my bestie. :)

*Hugs you anyway cos you are always awesome to me*

Hi Shauna, wow, I refreshed the page and your comment is above Nikki's comment... so you get a big hug as well. You are both first today, so you share the honor. :)

In this poem, love inspired me, and Fehl inspired me. But then she always does. But as you can see, I am inspired by friendship and more. Poems can affirm so many things. I try to put poems to good use. If they are just for me, they risk not being as good. If they are for someone else, then I have to raise the bar, and be better.

You are such a fan of my poems on Hubpages, Shauna, and I appreciate it really and truly. Thank you.

I am thinking of you today. :)

What a beautiful morning. Another sweet poem here from you. :) Can I just kiss and hug you now and gloss your lips to let you know how I feel right now? hehe It's rainy season here now and I feel like going to the beach with you. I see that little island I told you about... Wow :) And Pampanga... These has been my thoughts and plan lately.. I want a Me and You...

I want you in my island..

I love you so much.

I offer this life and be with you.

Mwaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

Hi Ruby - thank you for reading my new poem. Actually, this is a composite of a few lines from another poem that I reworked slightly, and I found a better use and purpose and sense to it. It's about being in a place I have not been to yet, but I plan to visit this location with Fehl. I have seen photos of Pampanga, and I fell in love with this city. I dreamed about it a few times and some of my dreams spilled out on to the page. That happens to me a lot. :)

I like to tie things together at the end of a poem. I like the ending as well, Ruby, as I think endings should be strong. Thank you for reading. You are awesome. And though I said it on your other hub, again may I say warm congrats on winning the award. You are such an inspiring person and we all learn from you. Keep trailblazing, and best wishes today my good friend. :)

Hi Neil - wow, it's good to see you again. I hope some of that Canadian snow is melted a bit and letting everyone get things done. It's warmer here as well, and summer can't come fast enough. LOL.

My poetry will always be this way, and I can't help expressing my feelings. She rules my world. Fehl is my world, and in oh so many ways.... :)

Have a sweet day, Neil. :)

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy ^_^

Hi baby. I am smiling now so much. Yes it is a beautiful morning because you are here now. :)

I emailed it to you yesterday. Hehehe. It got approved almost instant. Hubpages is fast. LOL. yes please hug me..... ummm. I am floating now reading these words...

Yes, this island really got my brain working. It looks so appealing and a must-go place. All that sand and blue water. I included it in the artwork for the hub. I like to put some effort into my hubs, honey. i want them to look nice. People are pinning lots of the images from poems on to Pinterest, and they get more reads, and more fans. I get ten new Pinterest fans a day. :P

If you have the link for that holiday place on Facebook you told me about, can you let me know? I want to put a link on that photo so people can click it and check it out. People need to know more about the Philippines and these lovely hideaways to visit for snorkeling, swimming and holidaying.

Oh honey, really? Then we are agreed. Mwaaaaaaaaaaah.

I love you so much. Just to be anywhere with you is heaven enough. To be there together... oh this would be a prayer answered.... :)

I accept your offer, because I accepted it a long time ago. You really are my Angel, Fehl ... you know that already.

I'm glad you love this new poem. I Want A Me And You so-oooo much, like yesterday....Hehehe. Phom rak Khun baby. ^_^

Hugs and kisses XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX

We have literally have 7,107 islands hehe and I wanna visit many of them with you soon and live near one of them hopefully :) But then just to be with you and live with you anywhere is enough for me. We can always visit them anyway. Mwaaaaaaaaaaaah! ^_^ I want to cuddle now and have some Chummy and Nippy savory kisses and more... Can I? hehehe

I like your photos and artwork always. You are so creative and I want you to teach me soon.. Yes, I will send you the link once the FB page is complete. Thank you so much for that.

Yaaaaaay, I am glad, Fehl. Oh please let me know the island's name. I wrote it down and now I can't find where the piece of paper is.... :P

So many islands, so many places ...... wow.... we have to see as many as possible, Fehl.

Oh baby.... chummy and nippy.... LOL. LMAO. I am so smiling now.... hehehe..... you are precious, you know that?

I will teach you the Photoshop and Xara software. Xara is amazing and so easy and fast to use.

Oh baby, you are so beautiful. I meant every word, and I will marry you. I am saying that here. yes. Mwaaaaaaaaaaaaah ^_^

My snuggly woman..... hehehe :P

Aww thanks Cathy. Well, I have had a letter written to me and there might have been a poem in it but this was a loooooooong time ago. Just happens that I am dating the same guy again though :) Yes, i know a red setter, they are nice dogs. Thanks for the poem and writing about me as a photographer.


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 2 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Wow, you got one. And now you got two, thanks to me. Hehehe. I know mine is not romantic but, well you are a photographer and this suits you. I see you some day having your own photo studio and business there. Oh, you're seeing someone. Yaaaayyyyy. The same guy as before? Wow, Nikki... rebound? Maybe it's a sign.

I got a friend, she is in her 30's and she never seriously dated anyone here, then she met a total hunk of a Finnish guy, who looks like Jeff Donovan from Burn Notice... and in 3 months they were a serious item and now she invited me to her wedding. Also, she is pregnant. Talk about quick... :P

I totally love red setters too. They are adorable. :)

When you smile, Cathy, the world smiles with you. When you share the spirit of romance in your poetry, it becomes obvious that love is in the air. You have a transformative affect on readers through your words. You are a brave and beautiful spirit.

Best wishes, Cathy.

Hi Gypsy Rose Lee - I am glad I brought you something beautiful in your otherwise ordinary day. :)

Hi Oberon -

Wow.... I wish you would leave more comments on my hubs. LOL. I know you have read lots of them already. Maybe even all of them.

Something about love makes us brave. I am not sure what it is, maybe it's having someone believe in you so much. You are such a flatterer, but really thank you. :)

Wow... and you putting your title on here now. LOL.

Astra,

Your love is radiating from every line of this poem! Wonderful to read and it warms my heart. The words give hope to anyone who doubts that real, unconditional love is out there. Hugs!


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 2 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi Christy, what a lovely comment from you. Thank you so much. My words are inspired by a very amazing lady. Anyone who knows Fehl can tell. In many ways, she makes it what it is. (Though she will say it's probably me... hehehe.)

What makes these words is very real, and from the heart always, Christy.

Wow, I don't mind giving hope to people. All I can be is honest and true to myself... oh and to keep it PG 13. LOL.

I discovered something weird and interesting about life in general... I found this from Cassy and again from Fehl... the happiest people don't have the best of everything, but they just somehow make the best of everything. I hope that makes sense, Christy.

Have a sweet day, my friend. Lots of hugs from me.

A love so true should be shared and cherished without reservations. Beautiful expressions!

I can imagine "the air so hot - and full of life -Pampanga's full of sound -".

I was there before and after the lahar...long ago with wonderful friends and great memories too.

Astra Nomik 2 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi CrisSp, wow, you have been to Pampanga? I am so impressed. The person who is the center of my poem. is from Pampanga. I am so glad you can identify those parts of my poem and relate.

Yes, I am so inspired by such a sweet lady in my life. Thank you, Cris. I hope your day is good.

Astra you are an amazing poet who writes from the heart. I can feel the emotion in your words. So full of passion, innocence and sweetness. Your poetry takes me to another place of beauty, romance and innocence.

Astra Nomik 2 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi Caroline, gosh what a lovely thing to say. Thank you. So long as there is breath in my body I will write from my heart, and my heart belongs to that one special person, Fehl. I guess I will always be a romantic at heart.

Wow, if there is beauty, romance and innocence in my words, then I might be doing something right after all. LOL :P

And such praise coming from an ACE poet such as you, Caroline, that means a lot to me. Have a sweet day and you get lots of hugs from me today.

Cathy.

Hi Chrissie, I just saw your comment. Gosh, thank you. If I made the world a little brighter then I did something good with this poem. I wrote it for a wonderful person who has been nothing but amazing and beautiful in my life. I feel so blessed to be hers.

Yes all is well here and I wish all things well and good for you, Chrissie because you deserve it so much. I love reading your poems on HubPages including your new one - "Take My Hand and Lead Me". I left a comment there. I would leave a hug as well, if Hub Pages would let me. Hehehe.

Have a sweet day, Chrissie. You are a great poet, and I love your hubs :)
