Naked And Born - Romantic Poem by Cathy Nerujen
Naked and Born is a romantic poem, and explores the "togetherness" of two people. Written on a weekend morning after waking up, my mind filled with so many things...
Naked and Born
I lie like a statue, I’m waiting
and still -
You lay down beside me, you’re looking at me.
Your hands as they hold me – then moving at will,
As we lay here together – in the shade of the trees,
Fingers caress me, along thighs and arms –
The length of my body – its valleys and highs -
Then your tongue slips inside me – raising alarms.
Naked and born – is how I feel now –
Just out of a womb, in the wide open warm
Of the Heat of Your Love – of a Sun that is bright –
In the glad of your smile – in the small fish pond,
Where the water it tingles – and bubbles up nice –
As the ambient yellow electric of life –
It burns me all over and cooks through my soul.
I cry at your touch – as you send me away –
To Nirvana – that place – beyond all emotion –
My senses are thrilled – my nakedness found –
Your lips pressed to mine – I am swimming your ocean –
I bathe in your warmth, as your tendrils around me –
Enslave me in rapture, in love and adornment.
We lie for an eon, now sighing quite softly –
Our bodies are wet from our efforts and glee –
My mind it is frozen and numbed by your yearning –
As legs wrap around me – and squat easily –
We rock here together – and heave and we sigh –
And we nestle and nuzzle – in the shade of a Tree.
Your love is a slipknot – wishbone kiss
Your feeling, your daring – your consummate love –
I climb in and pray for an imminent wish.
A sunbeam to kiss me – so sweet from above.
And bosom to bosom, we lie in a daze,
Like starfish – we sink – but we float - we just float.
So how we did come through the eye of this needle?
Our souls they are knitted so tightly and strong –
Your love is beyond me – surrounds me – enslaves me –
I quiver and shake – yet I know it’s not wrong –
That we both now are lovers – and women are we –
As the day slips to night – and the night is so long.
