My Sweet Ecstasy Engineer - Love Poem By Cathy Nerujen

Updated on October 5, 2016
My Sweet Ecstasy Engineer
My Sweet Ecstasy Engineer | Source

While thinking of
the night before
when words you said
went through my mind
when since we'd met -
in halfway space -
such feelings now
I comprehend -

the faucet off -
the towels replenished -
soap replaced -
and water drained -
lights are dimmed -
the music soft -
the smell of
lilac talc remains -

the bed is bare -
the curtains sway -
my eyes they see
the empty sheets -
where then I lie
and snuggle - nay -
you dreamy girl -
you're in my head -

My Sweet Ecstasy Engineer

I sleep and dream
of lands so far
across the many
miles and miles
and after time
and tired feet -
I find a street
with colored tiles -

the moon is high -
and crickets crick
the air is full
of sound and spice -
I spy a house -
it's lights within -
its family feast
on pork and rice -

and in a window
glow of green
where dappled shadows
play and fight
like kitten cats -
a girl I've seen -
She sits alone -
but what a sight -

Source

her hair so long
and fine, it flows
across her cheeks
and brownest eyes -
her beauty - bright -
it ever knows
how seem the
star-lit jeweled skies -

her presence moves
and feels a wish -
a place where want
has made a space -
she blinks
and turns and
sees me -
quite surprised -
becomes her
angel's face -

I know her name -
I know that smile
her lips I've kissed
a thousand times -
where apple grass -
and love so deep -
it grew with us -
I made her mine -

"Are you a dream?"
her voice it came -
her chuckle soft -
her voice so warm
she sees me - like
a dream, but real -
familiar - like a
dress she's worn -

We know our souls
have met before -

we know our
love is shy -

the kind that hides
from souls we know -

but open
like a sky -


"I dreamed of you..."
I answer back -
(white horses kissing
down your spine -
)
you blink and quiver -
words go deep -
like lips that savor
rich red wine -

sweet girl - we kiss -
the light becomes -
our skins they touch -
a soft veneer -
their cadence felt -
like burning suns -
my sweet ecstasy engineer -

our hearts wade in
the deepest stream -
they bathe and play
in pools so blue -
we found this love -
we dared to dream -
and no bad water flows in you -

you are this girl -
this fearless heart -
a kindred soul
who longs for love -
we wove like fabric -
tight yet soft -
a perfect fit -
a velvet glove -

Dedication

About this poem:

This poetic delight was partly written some time back, when I was falling so in love with a very special person. As our love and feelings grew, so too did the poem. My sweet love and I have come this far, and she deserves thanks and love for this beautiful relationship. If angels are real, and I say they are, then this girl is surely my Angel. Her name is Fehl Dungo. This poem is dedicated to you, honey.


No distance, sea or skies above
can stop us finding what we feel -
finding you - I'm finding love -
no judgment here - just love so real.
It's funny - how we write - and know
how muses feel each word so deep -
that words of ours -
swim deep - and flow -
and draw us close -
two souls to keep ...

my sleep awakes -
and yet you're close
your music kisses
hum in me -
no love ignores
companionship -
and now I
sing you constantly -

these words will flow -
and write our life -
like water spilling
round our feet -
our truth will sound -
our footprints filled
this love a fleece -
and us beneath -

Poetry Ideas for Writing

Are you a writer or poet? Do you dream of writing and publishing your poetry? I created poems some years ago and showcased them here on HubPages. I have had many hundreds of comments on my work, and it is a great way of being noticed and having your writing seen and read by others. Many other poets I know have done similar here. I am inspired by poets like Marifel Dungo, Dim Flaxenwick, actor / poet Michael Madsen, star of Reservoir Dogs, and more besides.

There are no real rules to writing poetry. Just write, and see what happens. Try out new ideas and new topics and themes in your writing. To get some ideas, try reading the poetry of other poets. Get some idea of what they are writing about. Sum up their ideas, see what they lead to. See what works for your writing and for you. Also try getting to meet and get to know poets and writers. There is no better way of gauging how people will like your work until you publish it. Good luck with your writing.

      Fehl Dungo 4 years ago from close to you...

      This is your best and most beautiful so far babe though you know each one is a favorite of mine :) Oh baby I wanna kiss you so much now for dedicating this to me. It brought me back to those times earlier than halfway space...It’s like a fairy tale, only sexy and deep…It’s like a bokeh and a silhouette, only more vivid and sparkling…I so love the cozy feeling this brings.

      You are my dream come true. I feel so much closer to you. Closer than close coz you are inside me always.

      Mwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I love you, Cathy. xoxo

      Oh wow....

      Fehl, your comments always blow my mind. Seeing your words make me so happy. I love writing my poetry and you are so much my inspiration now... for so long... Yes, there is references to past poems and past times when we met and became who we are now... :)

      I love your description and yes, I so agree here. Um, I toned down the sexy so it is acceptable. I got over 30 poems ready for my poetry book already. I am excited that my poem for you are in it too.

      I love you so much, Fehl. :)

      Mahal na mahal din kita sobra :)

      You are beautiful XOXOX

      This poem is so completely romantic, it conveys a wonderful message and shows the journey of love. How so much easier it is to write love poetry when one is totally in love. I know that feeling and experience it every moment. Keep that love in your heart Cathy, there is nothing better. To me this is certainly one of your best poems and I completely loved it. I shall certainly be watching out for your poetry book. Voting up dear Cathy and pressing those buttons too of course.

      What a romantic delight to read your words to the love of your life. Isn't love grande? I've been there and felt it cover my mind, heart and soul. You my poet have the exquiste knack and genius of caressing words and making them your very own. Your partner will appreciate your love for her that I know for sure. You are two stars shining in a Universe of LOVE and RESPECT for each other. This beautifully brilliant piece shines as bright as any star in your Universe. I am so happy to read and enjoy this romance you have between one another. You are both truly blessed. Hugs and best wishes from Vincent to the both of you. Voted up and shared.

      Hi Acaetnna, thank you for the lovely comments. Love is indeed a beautiful journey, experienced with a beautiful person. I feel that is what love is to us...

      I treasure it always, and feel so blessed to have Fehl in my life. One of my best? Wow, thank you. You are an amazing poet and writer, and I appreciate the words here. Yes the book is close to ready. I will let you and everyone on Hub Pages know when it is on sale. Thank you for the votes. Bless you. Have a sweet day. :)

      Hi Vincent. Gosh, this is high praise from you. You are among my Top favorite poets. This means a lot to me, Vincent. Caressing words and making them my own. I love your description here. I have found from the greatest poets that they imbue their words with their own "personality" and "flavor", almost like how cooks add extra to their own meals. LOL. :P

      I do spend a lot of time thinking about the person I write the poem for, yes. And in Fehl's case, I can't stop thinking about her, Hehehe. I like that you added respect here because yes, there is so much respect between us. If you were here now, I'd give you such a big hug for saying that, Vincent. :)

      And thank you for the kind words. Aw, you are sweet. I noticed this was shared 10 times on Facebook already, when it was published. That's unusual for my hubs. LOL. Mwah. Thank you Vincent. :)

      Hi tobusiness, what an interesting name. Thank you for the nice comments. I thank my sweet inspiration Fehl for making this poem what it is. It is about her and written for her. :)

      Hi Sannel, my sweet friend. it is so good to get your comments. Wow, I am such a fan of your blog. I added you to my blogroll on my blog / website. Aw, you are so wonderful to say that. Thank you, dear. Mwaaah. Fehl would be so happy to see these lovely words. You are beautiful Sannel. :) XOX

      Hi Ruby. Your words are so appreciated and thank you so much. You are a wonderful poet, and you always write with feeling and you have a great passion for writing. Bless you. I hope your day is sweet. :)

      You all get hugs today. And thank you also for following my blog.

      I appreciate the passion you put into this poem, it describes your love for this woman so deeply that its too captivating not to read. Your words are always so honest, that is what hooks me as a reader and a fan. It reminds me of the longing and love i felt while my love and i were apart and it reminds me of how beautiful and special it is to have that kind of connection with someone even when you're miles away.. Gonna stop rambling and say well done, you never cease to amaze me.

      Hi atlovesbm. Wow, you always get my poems and understand my hubs so well. It's good to see how so common human feelings can be - despite lives being different or experienced in other people's shoes. Wow, if you knew Fehl, you would see why the words are honest... I could not lie or pretend about my feelings for her. If I did, there would be a cement stone right now where my heart is. LOL. :P

      It's funny you saying that, by the way, but it is just the kind of writing I love to read. I mean words that are honest and words spoken from the heart. Or just words that are really felt... I love reading poetry like that.

      Wow, being apart from your love must have been tough and wanting to endure it and manage it means revisiting those loving feelings constantly. Thank you for the awesome comments as always. Have a sweet day. :)

      My dear Cathy - just gazing at you right now because I am a noted art lover - and even the 'sun' would be envious of 'your smile.'

      And certainly any writer of romantic poetry would be envious of your natural ability as you no doubt in my mind 'own this genre.'

      I must say I am a big fan of Acaetnna, and both you and her have most definitely influenced my 'attempts' at love poetry.

      Your talent is one that CANNOT be taught at writing school and that makes you one of a kind and so special - you just have a natural gift for these kinds of words and because it comes from your beautiful heart and lovely mind - lucky are the people in this lifetime who receive your love because you make this world a better place to be.

      Amen from the Rev. Colin and his pussycats , lol, Mister Gabriel and Little Miss Tiffy at lake erie timeless for you

      Hi Colin, your comments are so sweet. Hehehe. Aw you are nice to say that. My Sweet Ecstasy Engineer must be smiling reading this. I love writing poetry and romantic poems. And so too does Acaetnna. She is a dedicated writer of love poems. Please don't put down your wonderful poems and hubs, Colin, because you are so good at writing. Your writing is not attempts. LOL.

      I have also heard that saying from others. I am not an expert on what makes a person special. Maybe a look, perhaps a feeling, a smile or the way they hold our hand... or the way they look at us... or the way their soul is so in sync with ours... or just to share life and moments or longer with them... But as long as I fill my notebook with my feelings for the special Angel in my life, and she knows how much I love her... and be with her... that's all that matters to me. I just want to be loved by my baby. And I love Fehl so much. :)

      Rev Colin, and the Pussycats... wow, that sounds like a seventies music group... get Al Green and Jan hammer and John McLoughlin in there quick. LOL. And add Sia, Tina, Sophie and Mozez from "Zero 7" with Gabriel and Tiffy..... heh.... that would be quite a line up. :P

      Your talent cannot be taught, Colin. But I don't want mine getting big ideas of getting ahead of itself. Ego is not something I wear well or easily. Like an awkward dress size. So perhaps let's just be foolish and human and count our amazing blessings every day we have in this beautiful world. :)

      Oh God Cathy I love and adore the Rev. Al Green - he is my man - please go to You Tube and listen to the best cover of a Beatles song ever- I want to hold your hand for a real treat and then click for a video of the same song from the movie Across the Universe and it becomes a gay anthem which I thought was so cool and sublime and yes I love Jan Hammer - he did great work with the awesome Jeff Beck and John McLaughlin is one of the legendary guitar players of all time.

      Love the 70's music - although the 80's was my clubbing decade - lol - and talk about nightclubbing - check out the song with the same name by Iggy Pop -and of course the Waitresses' I know what boys want - and of course one of my favorite tunes - and you must check this out - by Elton Montello - the infamous and most beautiful Jet Boy/Jet Girl - and of course the New York Dolls ..... it goes on and on with me -

      Hug and kisses from Little Miss Tiffy and Mister Gabriel who just love pretty girls who write like five winds all blowing in different directions - and that is the essence of love isn't it - lake erie time 2:38am

      New York Dolls and Jet Boy / Jet Girl... I'm making notes here now, Colin. LOL. You are a musical Encyclopedia on Hubs...

      Wow, I love your description of writing like five winds... I am aiming in just one direction now, straight to my Angel. Hi to your kitties and you and lake Erie from us kitty cats. LOL. :)

      Yes, those lines describe Fehl and I pretty much, it is love that is shy but yes it is also open. She inspires the poet in me to write so much. I can't think of anything better in my life than the love we share. She is very special.

      Hi Dim: wow, two comments from you here,and I am so happy you loved my poem "My Sweet Ecstasy Engineer". I wrote this for Fehl. Um... actually , for finding the words I had to spend a long time thinking about the meaning first, and then the story in it, and finally the words after that. And then I had to weave them more and more until it felt right for me.

      Poems are so demanding but I am always happy writing them. All I have to do is think of the woman I wrote this for ... and it gets so easy to write, Dim. I will always be a true romantic at heart.

      Thank you always for your sweet comments in my hubs, Dim. I hope your day is good and you are well. :)

      I read this last night again and it brought me many things and memories...even to that place where crickets crick :p Sometimes I blink my eyes and pinch myself if it's true - that this person I'm falling in true love with loves me as much and more. There's nothing more meaningful in the world than waking up in the morning knowing there's someone in the planet who loves you so deep and that person is your reason of everything. I know soon, it will be the most meaningful coz I'll wake up beside you. ^_^

      I love you so much babe. No one can make my cry and smile at the same time. hehehe

      I want that day to be so soon, and it will be, I know it.

      Let them be happy tears, okay. I love you more than anything, Fehl. My heart belongs to you now forever.

      Incredible poetry. I can't believe I came across this great poem written by you, Astra Nomik. I read a few of your other poems. Instant Karma is unusual, and explains a lot about where your heart is coming from.

      Sometimes others will just hate you because of the way some people love you. That's how life is. Just keep on doing what you are born to do. You have a very unique voice, and your romantic take on things and people, well, it's pretty original and gets everyone's attention. It's also how you write it. Some poets would just so easily go down another route, but you don't. You seem to rise above that, and it shows in your writing.

      I see from your profile and your nice art ad that you have a book due soon. Please don't keep us waiting, I think many people want to see your words in print in books. I was very impressed with your magazine.

      Best wishes to you and your lady.
