You're Someone Like Me - poem by Cathy Nerujen


I saw you today

and I gave you a smile –

popped in for a chat –

and I stayed for a while –

your eyes were so tired

from a long weary day –

you needed a cuddle –

I asked could I stay.

We laughed and we talked –

then I gazed in your eyes –

I saw so much love –

that’s no real surprise –

this hot lava feeling

that lights up my veins –

sends ripples of love

from my toes to my brain.


You know my true feelings –

you know all my life –

you’ve stayed by my side -

through my troubles and strife –

we’ve kissed and ate muffins –

we drank so much wine –

we made Bacchus jealous –

with our youth and our prime -

we dance in the dark –

we glow in the light –

we snuggle like rug rats –

and winter up tight –

I’ll tend to your tiredness –

I’ll tuck you up warm –

with hot milk and biscuits –

stay with you till dawn –

There are more than just grains of truth about the maternal instincts of the birds in the pictures here. This is a romantic poem about a love that has bloomed between myself and a very special person. She is my soul mate. She is someone who knows me better than anyone else in the world. I can tell her everything, and she tells me the same.

But more than my soul mate, she is someone very like me. She is also a poet and writer, she sees the world and people as I do. She feels about things the same way. She and I have shared many wonderful and beautiful things together. She is so special in so many ways. Special as in, "I want to spend the rest of my life with you" special.

This is my poem for her. Because she is beautiful and because she loves me so much. And that means everything to me.

Poetry by Marifel Dungo


I’ll stay with you longer –

just give me the word –

we’ll build us a love nest –

for us two love birds –

I’ve found what I’m made for –

in the shade of this tree –

you are my true soul mate –

you’re someone like me.

This love poem is dedicated with love and so much affection to Fehl Dungo, who writes sublime poetry and amazing hubs under the name Blaise25 on Hub Pages. Read her beautiful love poems too. She is very much someone like me...

Read the poem - "To My Surprise", a lyrical and musical inspired by the music of Jazz and Frank Sinatra.

Hi Poetic Fool. Thank you for being the first to comment on my newest romantic poem. She is my Very Special Love. And I love dedicating my poems to her and to the people who make such a big difference in my life. And actually, she brings me luck too. And so much more besides.

Much thanks for reading my new hub. :)

Too lovely for me to add anything,. I feel I´d spoil something that is already perfect.

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

Hi Nikki: aw you are sweet. I do write poems for Cassy too. Cassy knows and she understands everything, and we are great. But this poem is for Fehl. Fehl knows me just as well as Cassy. If you look at my Facebook profile, you'll see why.

She is so special... And yes, she loves my romantic poetry. These words, these feelings... they all exist because of Fehl. I feel very blessed having her in my life.

There is a special dynamic in my life, and it is an oasis of love and peace. It would not be possible without Fehl and Cassy. Read their hubs, read and understand who they are. Then you'll know...

I always appreciate your kind understanding Nikki. Your hubs have been so amazing lately too. Have a sweet day.

Hi Dim. Dim, I will soon be reading your new poetry collection, as I ordered it. I even advertised its link here on this hub. :) I will be happy to promote any writers I know through Amazon or whatever.

Thank you for your comment. Thank you for your understanding. :)

In my heart, I wish for someone who inspires me to love with all my heart, but my logical mind tells me "hold back", because having and loosing is excruciating. But, real love is all or nothing. It is inspiring to know that you have found your one and only. Your words of love flow naturally, like true love should be. Maybe someday I will find the one worth letting go for. Thank you.


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Hi Amy: I saw your bio on your Hub Pages, so I have some idea of what you have been through. You are right. Real love is all or nothing. The special person in my life is the person I wrote about in this hub. And the safety net in my life is another very caring person in my life too.

I have never been in such a position but I can be free and honest without recrimination.

Yes, my feeling are honest and poetry has to be honest or else it fails. Poetry is part of what I am.

Letting go is a risk, and love is a risk since we put our hearts in the hands of another...but if that person is the most amazing and beautiful person we have ever met or known...

I count my blessings every day. Each day is something I treasure, Amy.

We are all human. I hope you find the special person in your life who can make you happy and feel that love you look for. Thanks for your comments. :)

Beautiful poem Cathy!!! Whatever your "situation" - you are obviously one happy woman. May you always feel the way you do today!

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

Hi Sharyn. Thank you for the comment. Well my situation is kind of self-explanatory if a simple trawl through my hubs / poems is done. And they are pretty straightforward.

My situation is one where I am very happy and content with my life. And whatever ways it can be made better, I can honestly say that I have wonderful people in my life who care about me a lot. And that to me is a complete blessing.

I am a "glass half-full" person and optimistic about the future. May the future be better for all.... and you too, Sharyn.

Astra Nomik profile image

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

Nika, there are some that I couold recommend. One obvious one is this one, it's popular with some Hub writers that I know and trust.

http://convozine.com/adultpassions

Andreea is a brilliant writer. Check out her work.

Cassy is going to be adding a new section to the new website she is working on, and people will be able to submit to it, with that kind of topic. It's not up and running yet, but she is developing it. And If you like, you can add anythiing on my new site when it is published too.

Yes, I love your hubs, and I am familiar. Wow, are Hubs moderating your hubs? Oops. Okay, talk to you soon. :)


NikiiLeeReyes 4 years ago

Oh my gosh! that made me blush lol. I really wasn't expecting that!

Ill check it out, when I have time.

OOOO are you really?!

Good luck and congratulations!

I know you two are going to do just fine; I just know it!

I love the sound of that.

Please let me know!

Talk to you soon :) bye bye for now! :*


Astra Nomik profile image

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

Heh. Don't worry about it, Nika.It's a good website. Andreea also has her own Wordpress blog.

Oh yes, I am replacing my last website with a more modern up-to-date one. It has more features on it. I will be able to sell my new forthcoming poetry book on it too. :)

Yes we are busy birds. You should check Fehl's amazing Websites too, as they are very professional.

Enjoy your weekend, Nika. Hugs. :) xx

Angel, yes the words I like them to capture so much... and yes it is made by two and defined by two also.

Hehehe... yes the snuggles.... like rug rats... I love that bit too. It's earthy and familiar and of nature, almost. I like to get my value from words in poems. :)

I love poetry so much. :) Thank you for the vote and share. Your comments are always welcome, Angel. :)

Hi donabhatt, I like the words to flow and sound easy to the ears... and the rhythm to flow easy too. Birds can do it so naturally when they are together, and it's beautiful to see... Nature gives so much inspiration for us as writers... Thank you for the comments. Have a sweet day. :)

Hi Cat. It's nice to see your comments on my poems. I wrote this for Fehl. If ever there was a special lady so worthy of love and my heart, it is Fehl.

Gosh, thank you for saying that. :)

I am smiling here now. ^_^

I have other poems, and some are funny and others are romantic - some are even both. Thank you for checking out my poems. I have a true fan here. Bless you, Cat.
