Summer Night Of Love - Poem By Cathy Nerujen

Summer Night of Love - Poem By Cathy Nerujen

What do you do
when your heart’s in love –
when your life turns good -
and your soul sets free?
What should I do
with the girl who’s pure –
who shares my hopes –
and dreams my dreams?

Cathy Nerujen Poetry
Cathy Nerujen Poetry

Why do I sleep - at night
in bed – and I think of you
as you lie in wait –
what can we do -
now I have this dream –
of a love so true -
and you’re in my head?

When will I see the
girl I love - who’s
arms they wait -
and her lips so sweet –
how will she know this
heart I have – is
all for her - as I
palpitate.

I lie here still – with my
mind so wide – and my
eyes so wide –
and the air comes in –
I can smell her perfume
beyond the door – and she
waits for me -
with her soft smooth skin
and her deep dark eyes –
then her hips they move
and she comes right in.
You have come right in.

Source

I’ll kiss you love, on your
soft warm lips –
and your dimpled cheeks
and your so cute nose –
I will brush your hair
out from your eyes
as I take you in –
and the door will close.

Then we slip our clothes and
our garments off – as
we lie down – facing
on the bed – while the
softest rain sneaks past
the windows –drizzling
trickles down the pane.

Your dreamy body - soft to
the touch – with my fingers
sliding – oh so lightly
up along and around
your neck – as I pull
you in – and you want so much –
till our lips they lock –
and the light
turns off – and I
want you now.
Yes, I want you now...

Here in the dark of the
afterglow – the night it
answers sweet desires –
our passion loosed and
cannons shot – we quench
our hungers, dowse the fires –
then - arm in arm - and
cheek to cheek
our souls entwine –
then we fall asleep.

Summer Night of Love” is fondly and lovingly dedicated to Fehl Dungo. She is a lovely woman, and she inspires so much of my poetry.

Hi Acer, thank you for this... this actually part one of a 2 part poem, which I separated into 2 poems. My next poem will be the second part to this. Yes...I try to be honest when it comes to feelings in my poetry. :)

I get so weak in the knees..this is breathtaking. Makes me wanna drink someone as my soul craves her..

Mwah! I love you.

This is so beautiful. I hear a lovely song every time I read it. More beautiful than Adele's and those RnB and soul songs. The girl whose name like a comet dedicated this to me. I'm so floating again! (Kisses and hugs..) Thank you, babe. :)

Hi Fehl, oh baby, I am so happy you like this. I like doing beautiful things for you,you make me want to write amazing things, because I feel amazing when it's you. Mwaaaaaah. Yes, it does have a sort of musical thing happening there. Oh wow, more than Adele... naaw, she so my hero I love her music too much. I wonder should I try my hand at writing music? Hehehe. I love you so much, Fehl. You inspire me, it's that simple. LOL. Now I feel like floating. (Kisses and hugs you back) Mwaaaah. :) Oh p.s. there will be a part 2 coming soon.

Hi acaetnna, aw this is lovely. You are getting big hug from me today. :) Thank you so much, that means a lot, coming from an awesome romantic poet like you. And thank you for the vote up, you are sweet. :D

blaise25 5 years ago from close to you...

I feel the same way, Firefly. Mwaahh! You know I love Adele, too but she doesn't write for me LOL So yours are more beautiful. :p Your poetry are perfect for music. They are always perfectly measured and composed. Dear Music, please take a glance at my baby's words. :) I love you so much. You always make me float. (more kisses and hugs) Can't wait to read Part 2..

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

OMG I wish Adele would write something for me. LOL. Well I am fine-tuning part 2 of this romantic ditty for you, Fehl. :) More beautiful, aw, that's because this is for you. Heh. maybe I should get into the lyrics market?

My part 2, the morning after poem will be just as measured and composed, and other things besides that, baby. Mwah. Aw, you say such lovely things here...

(Hugs you like crazy) I hope your Friday is sweet. :) XO

blaise25 5 years ago from close to you...

Oh Adele could stop singing if she wrote for me LOL Yup, those composers and music artists must see your lovely words. Music touches the soul. Yours touches both heart and soul. Yup, get into the lyrics market. :) Mwah!

My Friday was super sweet. It's written (see my new poem?) Mwah! My weekend was fine especially Sunday.. ^,^ (hugs and kisses)

Fehl, she is someone who writes songs from the heart. I always feel that emotion and intensity in her songs. She is just incredible. Wow, I love your taste in music, Fehl. Heh. You are giving me some naughty ideas here...um, lyrically and musically I mean. LOL. Oh your new poem is breathtaking, and so sweet and so ...you, baby. Mwaaah. I'm glad you had a good weekend. (Love your hugs and kisses...hehehe. ) ^_^

Hi again, Micky. You are a true fan, and I adore these comments from you lately. H'mmm, you would have liked writing it, haw?...Interesting...I think honest love is the best love ever in the whole universe. :) Thank you.

Hi Irene, wow I love the new avatar / picture. :)

Gosh, what a lovely thing to say... well the words are the mirror image of the love and how it is with the two people. I do believe in love. Irene, I hope you do experience it. It is beautiful and magical. And you will because there is a special person out there for all of us. And for you too. When that person sees your photo, that will be enough. Yup, you are definitely striking the pose there.

Have a sweet day, Irene. :)

open intimacy in purest form... beautiful Astra... Thanks!


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Hi Neil, there is something about "purest" that is conditional. I know it can mean many things. I don't claim any expertise on it, I think my arriving at anything approaching "pure" is a miracle, as I am not usually this lucky. LOL. But when the person I write for is so special...then I can't help but write from my perspective. I am very inspired, I guess. :) Thank you Neil.

..well you have definitely influenced my writing style because let's face it no one writes quite like you when it comes to the love/romance genre (along with other superstars like Blaise 25 and Acaetnna) and I am always moved by your sincerity and passion and it shows in every word you write - and your comments to me put me on cloud nine and I don't wanna ever come down .....

Hi Jami: thank you for the nice comments. :)

Hi Colin: I didn't know I was that ..um... influential, Colin. Heh. But I love romantic subjects and poems about love and relationships. What is it about love .... Speaking of which, Blaise is a total favorite of mine... and more besides...she and Acaetnna are 2 of my favorites too, but then so are you, Colin. Wow, you have so many poems now. You are incredible. I am proud to be a poet, and I feel so happy in the presence of such passionate poets here too.

Mae sure you climb down from that cloud okay. LOL. I can't help it as your poems are so amazing, you are a modern day bard and poet all in one, Colin. Music and beers. Cool. :)

Hi Spotlight19, thank you... I like writing love and romantic poems so much. Ooh, maybe because I like so many styles of poetry, and I try to make the poems different too, perhaps that's how that happens. LOL. The poem is about a wonderful friend of mine too...

Hi Nikki, yes it is very dreamy and surreal in a real sort of way, if you get my meaning. LOL. It was dream-like but wanting it to be so real too. And you are correct, budding and blooming so much. Heh. Thank you for the comments, as always. :)

Real passion and sensuality...your words are filled with true longing and a sincerity that is indeed breathtaking...beautiful


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Jinny, the passion is always there, and it fuels a lot of my writing of poetry. Sometimes the feelings can be overpowering. The feelings and the love is very real... so it's natural it will spill out in my poetry...

Thank you for the amazing comments. That is so beautiful, Jinny. Bless you. :)


JinnyMarte 5 years ago

Thank you for inspiring us to remember what love conquers and what it blooms through it. I also like that you have this sensibility about you. It is necessary to feel that in order to let go and be free to write like this. It reminds me of how I feel when I become inspired to write my hubs. Though most of the time it is not a human who inspires me, but my inmense love for The Lord Almighty...


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Thank you Jinny. Wow, you are checking out my hubs today. Gosh, if I inspired you, then I am very happy. Um...I sometimes wish I was a lot more sensible. LOL. I think when I write poetry like this, and when someone is inspiring me... it seems to somehow make it easier to write.

Belief is a very strong thing. I like what you say here, belief gives us the strength to love and it flows through us. I could not write love poems about someone if I didn't love them or believe in them. It's even better when that person loves us back and we inspire them and reciprocate.

That whole connectedness thing is really amazing. Thank you for your wonderful comments as always, Jinny. You are always welcome here. :)

Hi B.AWilliams, thank you for the comments. The imagery is engrained within the sounds and words and rhythms. I love writing poems. The sound of it as it is read has to be just right for me.

I am always adding to my poetry collection. Have a sweet day.

Really enjoyed reading your poetry :)


Seska Qin 3 years ago

Showing this to friends, and re-reading what must be a soon-to-be classic poem to be hopefully found in some volume of poems somewhere soon.

Again and agin I read your poems, and again and again you display a rare power over words that few writers can possess. Most writing about love and romance has become increasingly either cliched or overdone pulp that comes from a gutter disguising isn't self as a mind. Your poetry comes from a very unusual clean and beautiful place.

I can sense the erotic tension here, yet also the gentle restraint from you. Most writers could learn from studying your work. I have edited poetry for writers, and I have viewed your blog. Few websites have poetry of a quality as high as this on HubPages.

You have a great writing career ahead of you. And for the lady and special person or persons in your life, I must say, I envy them.

If you consider a career in a traditional publishing endeavor, I would like to make your acquaintance.

Warmest wishes to you again, Cathy.

Seska.

Hi fivesenses, thank you for the nice comment. How are things in India this week? I hope life is good. Feel free to check out my other poetry here too. Take care. :)


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 3 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi Seska. Thank you for another fine comment on my poetry. Umm, so many things you say here... where do I start?

"Power over words" is a curious term. I love words, believe me. And words do have a power. But words said wrong and handled wrong will sound um... sound wrong and "off" I guess. I do try to understand words a lot. I read a lot. I am not sure where that word ability entirely comes from in my case, but I appreciate the compliment here.

I guess the words from the gutter are another kind of writing, I don't have the stomach to go in that direction in any of my writing. If anything I try to rein in the words some times. The words come from the heart. And they are based on feelings and about feelings so strong.... wow. Thank you for saying this.

I am sure that you need to read more poetry on hub pages. Read Fehl Dungo, read Vincent Moore. Read Dim Flaxenwick, read valleypoet, read most of the people that I follow on Hubs. They are either writers or poets. And their standards are high. They are good, if not excellent.

On closer examination... I do sense the tension in this poem. I wasn't that aware of it before now. LOL.

That's poets for you. I write from the heart, and strike while the iron is hot. The words have more meaning. When I say something to the One I love, it must be said honestly. I think the power in the words that you referred to earlier... that is in the eye and mind of the beholder, the person who receives the poem. It is how they interpret them in the end.

Oh thank you for sending me the email.

Yes, Fehl and Cassy are very special to me. Anyone who knows them knows it already. :)

Thank you, Seska. It is nice meeting you. Have a sweet day.

Cathy.
