My Cup Fills With Love - Poem By Cathy Nerujen

Source

This poem is about waking up in the arms of my lover, written in 2010. It is the waking seconds and minutes of finding oneself awake and in the arms of someone so special, and how time seems to slow down in those sensual moments of togetherness. Captured in words as only poetry can do.

I lie awake - morning - saturday

The clockface - ticks silent -
the day is unsure of itself
You stir beside me - sighing,
I pretend I'm asleep - your hands
finger-sneak along my back -
and snake around my waist,
your sighs - wanting response
then your lips nibble my neck,
Through my hair -
and you inhale me -
As you always do -
I have woken
a hundred times like this
in your arms.

My Cup Fills With Love - by Cathy Nerujen
My Cup Fills With Love - by Cathy Nerujen

Your breath on my skin excites me -
I am lazy and giddy with childish excitement -
Your hand on my belly, squeezing -
I feel your body pressed against me -
there are no hard edges, only softness of you -
Fingers creeping up my chest -
I moan as I feel goose pimples on my skin -
and you sigh again -

Sensations erupt in me, as I give way
to the coming ecstasy -
I lean back into you now - you murmur,
My eyes meet yours as your eyelids flutter open -
Like Butterfly wings -
Baby-like sleepy innocence - but erotic pleasure -
You half smile - as I kiss you -
Like jam on my lips, moist and soft -
As you glide into me -

We nuzzle each other gently and cuddle -
Curtains shift gently in the morning breeze -
Your perfume - so familiar -
Our bodies greet each other -
And your soul awakens the need deep in me -
It tells me who I am.

Source

I look into your eyes -
I see pure love and beauty -
I feel joy and happiness bloom inside me -
Healing the holes and rips from within me -
We merge and morph into slow kisses,
Tangled legs and hair are we -
The day is tepid -
My tiredness pours out of my body -
As my cup fills with Love -

And I drink you in.

Hi acaetnna: I'm glad you line my goose bump inducing romantic hub here. Aw yes, weekends lazing in bed is the coolest ever part of weekends I think. Ha. Wow, listen to me. (blush) Thank you, acaetnna, you are a true fan. Take care. :)

Hi Blaise: hot as a hot chocolate, eh? Lol. Oh Blaise that is so making me smile now. I actually tried to tone the erotic side of it down to mere sensual, guess I didn't manage. Oh well. LOL. Wonder why I am like this lately? Well Cassy ain't complaining. Hah. In fact I blame her entirely. It's all her fault. LMAO. Oh, not the whole saturday, Blaise, we do actually do other stuff too...eventually... Ha. If I keep this up, I'll end up in the covers of some Mills & Boon paperback. As the writer of course. Maybe it's just the full moon or something...

Okay, it's late here, time for bed. Wow, how cool is that. I'll keep a notebook handy, just in case. One never knows when inspiration comes. ROFWL! Take care Blaise. Have a good day ahead.

Thanks for the rate up too. :P

Footnote: I just noticed that the hot chocolate drink and the drink image in the poem, you made me think that it reminds me of a drink analogy I used in other poems. Drinking seems to be a thing in my poetry, it seems. How interesting. Tc. XO

Hi twentyfive / blaise: its great to have so many names. Lol. Oh the naughty poetry, maybe it is a phase, or maybe I am getting more brave. Lol. Wow, you finished working at 10am? Cool Job. Is Farm ville good, I hear a lot about it. Or is this a real farm you speaking of?

Me a Vampire? Oooh! Scary. I am just an English gal sweetie pie. Butter would melt in my mouth, with some garlic... Lol. Have a great day, blaise / twentyfive. Cassy has a friend called "Fourteen", its not an age thing, its a nickname.

In the end we are all just a number. Lol. Take care. x

Just beautiful Cathy, sorry its taken me ages to read it as I have been ill. Tell Cassy I will check her new one out tomorrow as am off to bed with a lemsip, I know just a lemsip in the poor Captains bed, I need to get out more.

Btw the lil Cabin Girl returns on Friday with her first poem in a year, you really have a talent with the written word Cathy, night night moi Cockney Girls xox

Astra Nomik 6 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi Art. Oh, I am sorry to hear you are not well. You should get something better than a Lemsip if it is bad enough. Are you able to take Anti-biotics? If they help? Oh Cassy is alright, she understands, Art. You know her. As for Cabin Girl, I am looking forward to her return. If she is bringing poetry, then happy days! Poetry is making a serious comeback in case you haven't noticed in Hubs lately. She will be welcomed with open arms. Thank you for the lovely comments on my writing. (hugs) You take care, Art. Have some one look in on you, make sure you are okay. Get well soon, please. Okay? XX

Astra Nomik 6 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi cabin Girl..: Hmm well I am flattered to see this here, Cabin Girl.. . (Got to watch out for those dots.) I am looking forward to reading your "Friends". Aw, thank you for the nice comments. Lol. You are so funny, because I know who's writing the comment. LOL. The captain needs to rest and take plenty of drinks (no, lemon drinks and redberry drinks) The captain should have a hot toddy if he likes. Put cinnamon in a hot drink. Its good too.

Take care. xox

Astra Nomik 6 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

An erotic manifesto? I am always inspired by poets, Colin. I find that love is such a rich and rewarding well to draw from. I can't help it. Ha. H'mm, what does it say about me? Okay, maybe I should just shut up now before I embarrass myself more. Lol. Take care Colin. You are a great poet too. :)

"writing a romantic poem that explores and enriches the understanding of how two people can love and be with each other. " and you do it so well; I love your work; please dont take this the wrong way but I think Im falling in love. ^_^ Wow. You've gained yourself a true blue fan. Blessed be!


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 6 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

OMG, Nikki, I have just spent an hour solid checking as many of your awesome hubs as I could. Check the trail of comments I left you. LOL. I am delighted that you are enjoying my poetry. Falling in love? Oh my. Pull up a seat and tell me more. Hehehe. I am teasing you. I think. LOL. Seriously, I am a fan also. You write with a passion that is rare in few but the strongest personalities. I am addicted to strong personalities, as I recently discovered. Don't worry, I am not a vampire.

I would love to see your poems and many of your hubs (haven't finished reading them yet) in print. I would happily buy them. They are soul food to a woman like me. Bless you too. You can always be honest and speak your mind here. Take care always. :)


NikiiLeeReyes 6 years ago

Aww you make me blush ^_^ tell me how can I link your profile on mine? I wish to do the same for you; share your work, so people can see your lovely technique and skills in writing. people should read your poetry. I think they can gain some insight on what love really is. ^_^ please tell me how can I make this possible!!! lol


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 6 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Oh Nikki, sorry for my lateness replying. To link just go to my profile and copy the url address of my profile hubpage, hen go to your own hub profile, go into edit, then write the text you want, highlight or embolden he text you type or write, and select the link tab(looks like an "8" sideways) and paste the url you copied into the box and insert / ok it. Voila, one linked profile. And you can now do it as many times as you like.

Nikki, you are a wonderful person to say this. You deserve a hug for saying that to me. Well, now people can go from my profile straight to yours. Aw, you are very kind to do this. Thank you. I was right about you. May your Hub Rating go through the roof now. :)

Um, yo want to know about the love thing and how that works too? Heh. Maybe it was luck for me, or she just was destined to meet me in that Gallery all that long ago. Or maybe she and I were just born for each other, and she is "my Fit" as the saying goes. I am still figuring out the mechanics of my beautiful relationship, and how I "won" Cassy / Cheeky Girl. Read the encounters hubs she wrote. They say it best, I think. Or my poem "My Love she is a Tree". That comes close. It's the subject for a few more hubs from me. Next few weeks ought to clarify it. LOL.


NikiiLeeReyes 6 years ago

your writing is beautiful; and if you ever need me as a reference as far as you and your writing goes; You can be sure to count on me.

Thank you for telling me how to do it. Im going to link right now ^^

Hi Cheri: it's great to get your comments on my poems. I am glad you like this. Yes, it is a bit sensual and sexy. I get the urge to put things on paper and sometimes on the hubs, and then this happens. Ha. And can I announce here that Cassy is the inspiration behind this. Well, it's about us, not just me. :) I love waking up in the mornings. LOL. Thank you as always Cheri for being an avid reader of my hubs. You are great. And it's for free spirits like you that I write these words for. You have passion for the important things in life and I like that. Take care. :D

You are indeed a very wonderfully talented writer able to convey the words of love and intimacy in such a touching way. A Beautiful poem.

God bless and peace to you.


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 5 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi richtwf, thank you for these words. For some reason, I am more able to write about romance and love and intimacy than anything else. I am never entirely sure if it's a good or bad thing, until I write the next poem. Weird answer I know. Nice compliment for me to treasure here. I love your kind thoughts.

Loved your love poem a lot you are really an inspiration to me your poems really have emotions and real.


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 5 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi spotlight, oh wow, me an inspiration? Whew, that's a heavy thought. I write from the heart. And love poetry and romance is my favorite kind of poetry subject. Yes, the emotions are real and that is what so many people tell me. I guess I am writing poetry that I want lots of people to understand and somehow relate to.

I so love poetry...

Thank you for this wonderful comment today. Bless you. :)


Poetic Fool 5 years ago

Cathy, somehow I missed this one of yours and it is wonderful. So beautiful to be able to share such intimacy with someone. I don't see it so much as erotic as intimate. Maybe I'm splitting hairs but I see a difference. Wonderful words!


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 5 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi Poetic Fool, oh I don't have as many hubs as I'd like, so they are easy to read through. LOL. I tried not to blush when I wrote this. I think it's best to let this one speak for itself. Yes, sharing moments like it are special... and yes, there is a gentle and subtle difference. I'm glad you like it so much. I think the person we share it with is the inspiration. Thank you for the comments. :)

Hi Sannel, thank you for reading my poem.My Cup Fills with Love was an early poem and yes it is popular... I wonder why? LOL. I think everyone takes something pleasurable from it.

Hi Sunshine, I mean Linda...oh it is not invading, since I wrote it so it could be enjoyed by everyone. In reality I am not nearly as brave in public, believe me. :)
