You And Me Make Three – Poetry By Cathy Nerujen

(This is a most unusual poem as it deals with a third person in a loving relationship where two people already exist. Intended as a romantic poem, and in some ways an Invitation of sorts, it asks and invites such questions as - how can such a thing be possible, and how to express it? The explanation is not easy to give, so the poem expresses it better....)

You and Me make Three – poem by Astra Nomik

If you told me
that you loved me -
do you think that
she would cry?

Do you think
as lovers like us -
we can’t look us
in the eye?

Do you want
my smiling lips
to be a-kissing
of you now?
Do you quake
and often wonder
on the why
and on the how?

She said she is
okay with you -
and she’s
okay with me,
she treats and
she respects you
as though you
are family.

She loves
and she
adores you, and just
the same as I -
since loving you
is easy,
and you’re easy
on the eye.

Your face is
of an Angel -
your eyes are
of a gold,
they glimmer,
dance and glisten
with a story
still untold,

awash with
expectation,
and full of honesty,
we love and
I adore you,
as if we were
meant to be -.

with love and
being open,
and with
tons of hugs
to spare
we want you
not as third,
but as an equal,
cos we care.

We open up
our house to you,
we open up
our bed,
so climb on in,
and feel at home,
and rest
your “curly” head.

The cuppa
is a-brewing,
and the food packed
on the shelves -
the cook she’s in
her apron, look –
she’s wearing
nothin’ else,
she teases with
her cheeky laugh,
and winks and
brings the tea,
the TV is
a-babbling,
though there's other
things to see.

But look at me,
I see you now -
my sweet and
cupid friend,
I’m sorry all this
crap drove you
around the
stupid bend.

We love and
understand
each other,
happy we will be,
get used to Us,
get used to me,
for You and Me make Three.

To my Amazing and Special Fehl, my sweet baby, for whom I have such warm and sweet feelings.

Beautiful and an honest poem, each of us have so many feeling to share. All that matters his happiness and it can fade away, so hold it tight while you have it in youdr heart. Love and love as much as you can, for someday love is hard to find. Excellent hub, poem is real and raw...love & peace darski

Hi Darlene: my poem is no doubt a very unusual poem, and some people will be surprised by it, but yes, it is honest. And yes the happiness thing is important. I also wanted to not be tip-toeing around an obvious issue with someone, so better say it openly and directly. But hopefully not shockingly. You have a wonderful take on what love is, Darlene. That is beautiful. And thank you for being honest also. I would not think many hubs deal with threesomes. Love and peace to you too, Darski. Can I call you Darski now? Ha. Terrific. Take care.


TattoGuy 5 years ago

Wow, that was such a different take on a Love Poem but it turned out just beautiful. I have read some great Poetry on here from AIDY, JJ and RandyBehaviour but for me this is the best piece of poetry I have read on here. So sincere, so putting the reader in the room watching it unfold.

This is your best piece of writing Cathy, as a big poetry fan I can only say that really touched me, I am going to share this on my Twitter xoxo

Hi Art. My, you really know how to make me smile here. Yes, it is very um...brave for me to write something like this. Ha. I will check out the poets you mentioned here, thank you for the names. (Hugs) Aw, the best, really? You just saying that. LOL. Yes, putting the reader in the room, in the kitchen, in the bedroom...LMAO. Wow, so maybe I ought to do more like this. It's not easy. Aw thanks Art. You are wonderful. I am blessed to have you here, you are a good friend. I hope your flooring goes well. The Cherry red would go nice with a big green Christmas Tree. :)

Take care, my big wonderful TattoGuy Art. XOXO

Well Cathy I thought this was breath takingly awesome. You have a magical way with words, you are honest and absolutely pull no punches. I like that and love your poetic words and theme.

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

Hi acaetnna, gosh what a great comment here from you. I wish more of my friends would say stuff like this. Ha. I never thought I would see the day when I would write about this theme in a poem and also publish it to be read like this. Thank you for the comments, you have made this lady smile today. :D And I could probably not find a better way to say these things than through poetry. I just love poems and live them...probably too much. LOL. Maybe I should get out more...

Thanks again, my friend. Praise from a great poet like you is truly High Praise indeed. Take care.

Hi Nikki, checking mail and hubs, and saw your comment. Yes, I am busy with a job change (working in a newspaper now) and back with poetry again. Hehe. Glad you waited for me. : ) Yes, this is me and my usual thing I do, maybe too honest...it's hard to know where the line can be...sometimes I won't know till I write it and stuff happens...so sometimes I have to write it to know I am alive and breathe, and the other person does the same...

Yes it is love. Love is amazing. It is very real to me. The music of a human soul makes me cry, it can be so beautiful.

I love getting your ace comments, Nikki. You are pure sunshine to me. :D

Hi Cheri, thank you for this. The book thing only just came to me in the last week. I am watching Cassy putting her final touches to her book, and I am longing to see it in print. But I am now wanting to get a nice sized collection of my poetry and publish it the same way she is. She will be using Facebook to promote and market her book (She just published a hub on how to do this, I haven't a clue as I don't have facebook) but she is a genius and I trust her instincts.

My poetry can sometimes feel almost too real or too honest maybe, but I wrote this as I felt it was me being honest about things. And I am sure people can read what is behind it. (Just not who...Heh.) Yes, it feels weird and wonderful and strange too, Cheri. Oh, my book will take a while as I don't have enough poetry yet to make a book. But Blaise25 has already done this and published romantic poetry. She and Cassy are my inspiration, and so are you, and Nikki too. Take care, Cheri. :)

Thanks! and wow! I am a fan of yours and feel more honored that you like my work. So to know that I inspire you is a great feeling. Thanks so much and you will be great.. I am excited for you! I feel nervous sometime in a weird way, noting bad just a feeling. The closer I get to the publishing of my book. lol it's cool; However Cheeky girl her book I know will be great as well.. This is so cool. I can't wait..

You both inspire me.. You have to read my Real Live Movement Poem.. Bless you Astra Your fabulous..

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

Thank you Cheri. You are not afraid to speak your mind and I like your attitude to life. It's catchy. I will get your book when it comes out. You would be nervous, you're better than me. I am terrified my friends will read my book. Ha. No one I have as friends in my life are writers apart from Cassy. I feel braver seeing you doing this and other cool writers too. I wonder will Nikki publish her writing? I must ask her too. I really wish you luck with this, Cheri. Cassy is still editing her book. My, I am honoured that I inspire you. Really? Okay, I will read your hub. Take care, Cheri. Blessing to you always . :)

Well, I'm going to behave myself and refrain from elaborating on the many places my mind might have wondered while reading this. Just know that it did wander; you strike the imagination and get the blood flowing, that's for sure. Another great write. Cheers.

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

Hi Doug, oh your mind wandered, haw? LOL. Or is that wondered? I get you, no fear of that. Um, I say my piece and get to the point, that's all. I am not afraid to admit things no matter how unusual they are. If its what I feel, it is worth saying. Thank you for the kind words. :)

I just can't believe your amazing poetry. I find myself clinging to every word. Very appealing to me is "The music of a human soul, etc." VERY VISUAL use of words. I am such a fan! Rated up and awesome.

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

Hi vocalcoach, well my poetry can be kind of... em...unusual. I love writing about Love and Romance and Friendship. I know exactly what you mean by music of the soul. I am putting these poems together for a poetry collection to be published some time this year. Thank you for being such a fan. I appreciate the rating too, you are awesome for doing that. :D

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

Don't worry Nikki. Neither have I. But the person I wrote this for is well deserving of it. It is hard to explain, but the poem does a good job of saying a lot about it all, so I will let the poem speak for me. And spare anyone any blushes. Heh.

Oh wow Astra, it is not love triangle but actually three people and i hope it wasnt meant more than emotional thing.

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

Hi IreneMarieW: ooh, sexy and beautiful. I like your description of my poem "You and me make Three". LOL. Well, it is a bit naughty, but there it is. Sometimes a girl just has to feel the fear and do it anyway. Yes, it is possible for more that two people...I agree very much. :) Thank you.

Very few can broach the subject, but not leave an impression or aftertaste of hedonism. Very romantic, but sensual, a very fortunate guy with two women who both love him and each other equally. Awesome...


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Hi A.A.Zavala: thank you for the comment. It is very possible for a woman to have such feelings. And yes, it can be and is sensual and romantic. And of course, it is not a "guy" as you mention, but a woman. :)

Hello my dear! Hope you are doing well. I wanted to revisit this piece, becuase this was one of the first poems I read by you. I love it now as I loved it then. I wanted to link it to the collected work of erotic poetry that was created. Linked...

Hi Augustine, I am (kind of) well. (Long story for another day.) LOL. I hope you are well and doing great. This poem was unusual for me, and got plenty of people's attention. Oh wow, a collection of poems were created? Really? Oh was it in Hub Pages or is it somewhere else? Gee, I wish I knew about it sooner. Thank you for telling me, you're a star. And thank you for linking me too. :)

Hi carolinemd21: that is sort of a good basic description of what is going on in this poem. There is comforting, and a lot more besides. Thank you for the comment. The person it is written for is very special. :)

Astra, you sure knows how to spellbind your readers with your loving, sensual and very erotic words! Wow! This is a very honest love poem, perhaps a little bit naughty in a very romantic sort of way. Only a very talented writer as yourself could get away with this!! Just brilliant!


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 4 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi Sannel. My poetry sometimes has that affect on people. LOL. Yes, it is all of these things. The person I wrote it for understands the meaning better than anyone...

I toned it down somewhat, as I don't want to alienate anyone, but give the hint as to what it is about. It's a threesome. LOL. Thank you for the comments, Sannel. :)


iamaudraleigh 4 years ago

I just sa a show on a triad...very interesting and cool! I am glad you brought an honest an dwonderful relationship to the front and shared it with the world! Feels good I bet! Great job, beautiful poetry straight from the heart!


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 4 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi Audra.... a triad...? Oh is that not a criminal Chinese gang or something? Oh you mean a Threesome? Hehehe...

Well it is not really a threesome thing, as I am a bit wary of that stuff... but it is more about three people who are very familiar with each other.... and there is a lot of positive vibes all round...

Even though things have changed since I wrote it... we are all very close....it is complicated. LOL. But it is a testament to our friendships with each other.

Yes it is always poetry straight from the heart. And with love and understanding, we can accomplish a great many things. Thank you for the comments. Have a sweet day. :)

Very unique Three way poem here, wow its filed with cool style wordings that truly rhyme with much reason, I liked it very much. Nice job! Cathy

Voted up and Outta here! "Threesomes are awesome, been there done that a while back, and have loads of fun!"


Astra Nomik profile image

Astra Nomik 4 years ago from Edge of Reality and Known Space Author

Hi shalini, yes this one of my more unusual poems. Some of my subjects can be still romantic or love poems but always with a twist. I honestly try to be different in my writing of poems. Thank you. :)

Hi CloudExplorer, well my styling and rhyming are made to suit the subject, if possible. Some of my poems are non-rhyming ... though they can still have "beats" in them, as they can be almost as good sometimes.

And yes, actual threesomes must be so ... um... weird and interesting to someone who has ...um... been there and done that. LOL. Who said poetry can not be entertaining?
