Your Love Is More Than Gold - Poem By Cathy Nerujen

Your Love Is More Than Gold

Your love is more than gold -
and your lips are more than wine -
your kisses never miss me -
cos your love is so divine -
your love it shines right through me -
and my heart it warms and melts -
this love I feel is so surreal -
it overrides all else.

Source

You found me for a reason -
and you give me love and hope
You love me through the seasons -
You teach me how to cope -
your loving touch I crave for -
an everlasting high -
like sand and rolling beaches -
of the soul of Boracay.

We swim within this ocean -
so tanzanite and warm -
your skin it feels like velvet -
your eyes wake up the dawn -
we blend inside these currents -
of nature's majesty -
you take my hand and kiss me -
till I'm floating in your sea.

We roll upon the shoreline -
and we kiss among the palms -
we lose our clothes and garments -
and lie naked on the sand -
Your eyes so warm and tender -
your woman's touch so bold -
I love and so adore you - cos
Your love is more than gold.

Your Love is more than Gold” is inspired by Fehl Dungo and I warmly dedicate this to you. You inspire my poetry so much. I have to say a big thank you to Cassy for all the help and love with everything in my life. Bless you both.

Hey, I'm the romantic who loves those beaches, especially those hidden canyons, but I guess there's room for all of us whose naked and in love... no fair peaking though...

You two are very very lucky to have each other and I feel particularly honored that you share such incredible feelings and words with us, but I gotta tell you, I'm spending a hell of a lot of time in that damn cold shower..ha ha ha...love you both!!!

Bella, thank you...and yes, Nikki is awesome. She writes and tells it straight from the heart. :)

The Suburban Poet: Hi Mark, um...yes, it is a love poem and more besides...I love rhythm too...the photos I pick for showing the tender,gentler side of love. I appreciate your input. :)

Hi Bill: I love the way you sneak certain words into your comments. LOL. You are getting very happy in my comments about my poetry, and waxing lyrical too. I am a lucky woman, and Cassy is a blessing to me, and Fehl is too. The bonus to the world is that they both write here in Hub Pages too.

Words were meant to be put to good use and can express so many beautiful things. Oh I love exotic beaches and Boracay is one I have been reading up on recently. I want to travel there some day and go with special friends and explore it. You and that shower. Ha.

Hi ExoticHippieQueen: thank you for the kind words. Oh, I have a few other poems in a similar vein to this. I do my best to keep it real, and decent too. There are some special people in my life and I worship them. :)

Hi Augustine: um yes, I dedicated it to two wonderful people. Aw, you wish you wrote it? Heh. I am looking forward to the guest hub spot coming soon. And thanks to you. Best wishes. :)

That was breathtakingly beatiful. I so want to go to the beach, even more now. Hopefully for 4th of July weekend. But this made me feel as if I was there already, laying on the sands with my loved one.


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Hi Nikki, thank you for this. The beach in question is a magic pace in the Philippines called Boracay. Cassy went there a few years ago. I am so jealous. Ha. Oh 4th of July is a Big Holiday in the USA. Aah there's nothing like being on the beach and being with the ones you love. :)

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

Hi Nikki, I am so happy your website is coming on so well. It's now advertised in three websites of "Team Cheeky". Woohoo. LOL. (That's our nickname that Cassy and I gave ourselves.) You must have a bbq on July 4th, Nikki. Get some burgers and steaks or shrimps, whatever they throw on the "barbie" these days. LOL. Well a long weekend off and a day at the beach...sounds delightful and relaxing. Go for it. :)

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

Hehehehe. "Who is Fehl Dungo"? She's the most....um...I will email you, Fehl. LOL. Please read the darned hub again... LOL. Who are you jealous of, Fehl?... Heh. ^_^

Nikki, I was wondering would you see the comment boxes there, the new ones. Yes, I will leave some. People can leave their avatar pictures on the comments too...just like in Hub Pages.

Oh your holiday for July 4. I am a total beach freak as you can tell from my poetry. I am planning a beach holiday of my own some time. Beaches are so cooooooolll. :)


Nikkij504gurl profile image

Nikkij504gurl 5 years ago from Louisiana

Yep I saw it. I like it. Thanks for adding it. I added some more photos to my website, and some self portraits i played around with a long time ago. also learned how to layer photos did a couple of those and will be adding more.

and I am going to drive out to pensacola for a day with the bf, spend the day out there, check out some place on the beach called Hemmingways, my friend told me about, and drive back. its only 3 hours away so I wont be driving all day. Yes beaches are awesome and so relaxing. I am over due for a nice little get away, even if it is only for a day.


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Hi Nikki, I saw the new extra pages and photos and poetry photos. Oh please keep ding this as it looks more and more awesome. And yes, enjoy that day out with your BF. :) Hemmingways sounds very um...literary and writerly...hehehe. I think it will be inspiring for you. Oh beaches...I love beaches, Nikki. Take care today and all days... :)


Nikkij504gurl profile image

I will Cathy Thanks! and I have no idea what Hemmingway is lol but my friend said I should go there I should have asked her what it is, but I can Google it lol

was just teasing... ^,^


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Nikki, Earnest Hemmingway is who I was thinking about when I said that. He's one of my favorite American writers. That's why I said writerly. Heh. Maybe it's a lapdance club. Who can say? LOL.

Blaise, I mean Fehl...I know you are just teasing. I love that. LOL. ^,^

bbnix 5 years ago from Southern California

Read Hemmingway Nikki..you have to..then you'll you know that place to be of tortured geniuses (like us).. that'll have lap dances..but rather than enjoy it..everybody just writes and cries at the same time about it...just sayin'..

your love is more than gold. How can such a simple sentence be so profound and full of deep feelings?

Absolutely lovely.


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Oh I love Hemmingway, he had a romantic slant to his writing, and he invented the modern approach to writing dialogue that I learned at school, he stopped adding names to sentences spoken by people in dialogue pieces, and you had to concentrate harder on what was being said in conversations that he penned. I had to read through parts of his books several times. And of course everyone copied his writing. And yes, he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. I am glad Nikki mentioned Hemmingway to me earlier in another place. Such a great writer.

Oh I would urge anyone to check out his many wonderful books, Bill. Yes he was a tortured soul, but just look at the quality of his writing...

Hi Dim: how can it be full of deep profound feelings? Um...because they are real. Now you know my secret. The person I wrote about here is someone I love so very much. Love... it will fuel the words... what can I say?... I am thankful for the warm and kind comments. Bless your heart, Dim. :)


bbnix profile image

bbnix 5 years ago from Southern California

Hmmm. so it just makes great sense, to be a great master, just be a tortured soul,or just like our wondrous Cathy, just write from heart's pull...


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Bill, it is pain and sometimes torture that invoke an emotion or reaction in us, and it is how we filter that and respond and how we express that emotion.

But it is not always torture. Love and romance are beautiful things and so is being in love. There are other things to write about. But to write about them one has to believe in them. To believe in them, one has to feel them.

Maybe some like Hemingway loved the torture or some are addicted to pain, or they need to feel pain to know they are alive. But writing from heart's pull....um...it sounds interesting. Me...wondrous...LOL.


Enigmatic Me profile image

Enigmatic Me 5 years ago from East Coast Canada

Of feminine love and lovers, no male can understand, but keep writing like this and keep me inside this little clan. A tryst like this can only be, if things are true and safe, and I trust the words before me mean that love like this is real, god woman you know how to write what you feel!!!!!

Well done!


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Hi Enigmatic Me: understanding love is simple. Love is love. The feelings are really the same. Well to be inside the "clan" requires only that people who love and enjoy poetry simply read my poems, as they are only about romance. You will see the common theme running through all my hubs, though they might vary in obvious ways. I am a romantic at heart.

A tryst is no less true for lovers who love each other. And yes this love here is very real, and feelings must be absolute in order for poetry to be real too. The function of my poetry is to explore that feeling and reclaim the amazing sense of what that love is...words can venerate the person we love so much.

If you doubt that, just read my other poems. LOL. Though you will see they all point like different compasses....all towards one magnetic point. *True love*, *Love* and always Love.

Thanks you for the excellent comments.

Hi acaetnna, oh wow, that's a lot of "ups". LOL. People might ask questions. Hehehe. I am kidding. :) Thank you for the wonderful comments. Have a sweet weekend.

@JadedLove: I think poets have to use feelings to create meaningful poetry and writing. Otherwise it won't seem real somehow. And painters are the same. I wish I could paint. I appreciate the comment.

..you have such a direct way of speaking to your reader and that makes it such a raw, honest and emotional experience - most writers would take a lifetime to come up with something this pure and sincere - but you my friend have a gift of such a flowing and noble heart - and as I see it, love is love, no matter what the gender or set-up, but the love of your writing is certainly something for the epi-man to cherish .....

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

Colin, this is so beautiful. Thank you for saying this. If my poems could not be honest, then love would be nothing. Wow, that would drive me insane. Ugh. You are right, and maybe it is too raw sometimes... but I write from the heart. There are some things I can't hide or lie about. And especially for special people that I love so much.

You are right, love is love. I think anyone can understand the feelings in here. As for the gift thing...well, We'll wait till I publish my poetry collection and then see if I have the gift of selling any. Hehehe. Aw, well I cherish your poems too, Colin. You are a National Treasure. :) We cherish you always. Hugs from me. ^_^

......back this glorious morning Cathy to revisit a classic and a classic it surely is because this fabulous piece has your lovely poetic persona written all over it - and yes you have 'your' male admirers too - like me, and the title reminds me that it could be a song by Sarah McLaughlin - yes that title is a hall of famer but then again - so is the person who wrote it - love and hugs to you both courtesy of the man who adores the Cassie and Cathy show!

Hi Mamadrama, I guess everyone know you are a great writer, and you deserve to be published. :) Yup, I read that hub and I loved it so much. I know the passion can just fuel the words to flow onto the page ... I think the more passion, the less effort almost, in some ways. Passionate writers are the best writers, I think.

Yes, what you say here is so true. Well, thank you for this. :) And I appreciate the many comments from you today. Thank you for the follow. I will be a regular visitor to your hubs. :)

Hi makusr, thank you for the follow too, wow, I love getting new followers. LOL. H'mmm, well okay... if you like flow and rhyme and if you like plenty of emotion I can easily recommend my other poems to you, as I write from my heart always. And flow to me is everything. Poetry should flow like water...

Thank you for the vote, and the love too. Lots of love back. :)
