The Pleasure in the Deep

Cathy Nerujen is a dedicated poet, writer, editor, blogger, freelancer and creator of e-zines. Co-founded Webonist and Flashstar Magazine.

Safe within my dream
I heard the scream
of distant laughter -
as the echo of the night
its rapture lightly
caught your eyes -
they gazed within the
space of confined
furniture so spartan -
as your embrace came
so willing - kisses
spilling in to mine.

Your eyes shone in the darkness
golden warmness
filled my senses -
the noise of distant
voices vanished
slowly far from thine -
your voice like
melting butter
didn't utter
but a word - as
your lips
traversed my breasts -
turning water
into wine.

The night it can play tricks
as - eyes they fix
upon a detail -
a word, a lover's kiss -
a loving touch that
makes life new -
like - when a sail
receives a breeze
that is so willing -
so rewarding -
then that wind
is heaven sent -
because that
Heaven - she is You.


The bedroom fell away
as lips - they played
upon my tummy -
your lovebites wet
and yummy -
as our bodies
became one -
your fingers
soft as snowdrops
traced hot lines
along my skin now -
my yearnings
turn to longings -
as my blood
burned like
the sun.

Safe within the sheets
the bedsprings creaked
in their annoyance -
as our fingers touched
and coy hands
the pleasure in the deep -
the centre of our senses
is the core
of our bethrothal -
as our throats they hum
in union -
for a love
we sisters keep.

My Dream wakes
in to daytime -
as the smell of bacon
beckons - kitchen noises
in the next room - make
me dress - and go and see -
you standing in an apron
at the cooker - frying breakfast -
feet are tapping to some music -
then you turn
and smile at me.

The angle of your curves
inside your jeans -
it gently pleases -
as your teases
in your eyes
and sunripe kisses
drive me wild -
our greetings at the cooker
it reminds me of past christmases -
when naughty
girls and mistresses
found gifts - oh so wide-eyed.

We sit and open presents
asking questions -
between laughter -
"we're celebrating what?"
but does it matter -
here today -
it's so hot -
the beach it beckons -
we're so poor
but we're so rich -
so consequence
won't move us -
my Sweet Love,
we have all day...

This poem is published as part of my forthcoming new book of romantic poetry to be published in 2018. More info at Flashstar Magazine,

This poem is fondly dedicated to a sweet woman, my muse and my love, Fehl Dungo. I am always inspired by great poets - many of whom are published even here on Hubpages, such as Blaise25 (Fehl Dungo), Epigramman and Vincent Moore. See Epigramman's link here, and please support great Hub poets and authors.

P.s. What kind of niche writer are you? Poet, romance writer? Short story writer, fantasy or science fiction writer? A cooking or teaching writer? Technical or science writer or blogger?


The Pleasure in the Deep has become one of my most popular poems. This love poem is dedicated with love and affection to you Fehl, because your love is beautiful. You are a beautiful woman, you are so inspiring, and a beacon of Love in my life. And for Cassy for all your constant support and friendship.

      Well, that says a lot for me. This is a terrific poem. Absolute cracker. You have many styles all combining and your way of word matching and sound matching is so amazing. That you can manage to fit so much lyrically into a romantic poem like this is outstanding. I am a major fan. Think I read 12 poems by you on this site, and you are way ahead of the pack. (I still have not read other poets here yet, but I checked out blaise25 and I'm warming to her poetry more and more.)

      I work for a publisher that publishes several kinds of writing, including poetry. I sent you an email, would be honoured if you could look into what is there. Very best wishes to you, Cathy, and to Blaise.

      What can I say? The pleasure comes from writing poetry and being so inspired by the special people in my life. I think the "Big Hill" poem will wake up a lot of people when it's published here...

      Good morning Colin from poetry and copywriter headquarters. Hehehe. I get messages from people telling me that this is their favorite of all my poems here on Hub Pages. Um... me magic.... ? Wow. I wish, really I do. :P

      I have always tried to simply write from my heart. I examine my feelings. I just think about things deeply. If my heart was a cold empty place, then my poetry would reveal it, I guess. But it isn't, thankfully.

      I think they can teach how to perfect the skill of writing and of rhyming more and internal rhymes, Colin. This poem has more than usual. Gosh, thank you for saying this... that means a lot. You are so sweet, Mister Epi sir. :)

      Oh I will read your new poem. Warmest wishes to you and to warm up your day in Lake Erie and say hi to the cats. Our cat Max had a cat bath last night. He was not impressed. LOL.

      Thank you for the gift of your wonderful friendship, Colin. You always shine, and I love you for it. Have a sweet day. xx

      You are a copywriter's dream dear Cathy and these words as all of your words inspire me to become a better writer. You are the magic in which I talk about - and that you can't teach your style of writing at a writer's school - it is beyond that - it's just a natural force of life and a gift which comes from your own beautiful heart ...... will see you on FB with a post here and out of hiding I have come up with a new one called

      In her cold caress.

      love and hugs to you and Fehl from the three of us - Colin, Tiffy and Gabriel at 1:05am

      Hi Janika. Wow, I get to call you by your real name, at last. Hehehe. Lots of people have told me on Facebook and other places that this is one of their favorite poems from me. Everyone sees something or senses something in here that they can relate to somehow. Did you liken this to a box of chocolates, Janika. Oh wow, can I just savor this moment now... I am a made woman. LOL. Finally I have become something... I have to call my agent. LMAO. :P

      I am happy to share my writing with you, and everyone. And I love sharing it with friends like you, who understand and appreciate. Janika, you are my audience. Thank you for these beautiful words. Just knowing how much you love my poetry makes me want to write more.

      Wow, you had to stop to take breaks as the words were so overwhelming...? Gosh, that is ... um... interesting. Hehehe. :P

      That part you quoted is a good extract. So may people say rhyming and rhythm is too much nowadays and ruins poetry, as it distracts. But it just works in this poem... it fits. Feel free to read my newer poems if you like. (I have enough written now for my poetry book.)

      Yes, the ending is set in reality, and I try to keep it real. The references to spartan belongings, yet fulfilled people who love each other - sets the tone for what makes a wonderful relationship. We are all poor, but because of who we love, there is other kinds of "wealth" found inside happiness, contentment and togetherness with the beautiful people in our lives. Material things are not as important as those we love and to whom we owe so much. A lot of what is in here is directly because of my Angel Fehl.

      I would love to see that grin on your face. :)

      You are wonderful, and your writing and your friendship means a lot to me. I want everyone to read your lovely poems and bold writing. You always stay true to yourself, and that is beautiful. Have a sweet day, Janika.

      Love and hugs today from me.

      Cathy, Cathy, Cathy. I cannot believe you sit in front of your computer and tell me such wonderful things about my writing when you, you have the ability to gracefully put together such a beautiful piece. This is like a box of chocolates, I wasn't sure what was coming next-- but damn was I loving every moment of it. This isn't talent, this is a gift. And I am pleased that you're sharing it with us. Young writers like myself can only be inspired and can only grow upon reading something like this. There's no turning back.

      I found myself having to stop in the middle of lines because it was so overwhelming! In a good way. Where you were-- You took me with you. I must quote you ..

      "as my blood

      burned like

      the sun.

      Safe within the sheets

      the bedsprings creaked

      in their annoyance -

      as our fingers touched

      and coy hands


      the pleasure in the deep -

      the centre of our senses

      is the core

      of our bethrothal -

      as our throats they hum

      in union -

      for a love

      we sisters keep."

      Oh my oh my Cathy. I loved how you ended it as well, "We are Poor but So Rich." Beautiful.

      ::Devilish grin::

      You never fail to disappoint.

      With Love,

      Nika (Janika) Nikii

      Hi ahorseback, that is an interesting name. I love to paint poems in images and sounds of words. Language in poetry has to be just so... for me anyway. :P

      Thank you, the flirting um.... ah... I don't know what that means. Is there even such a thing.

      If there is, well that's not meant for your ears or eyes... that is for Fehl. LOL. Thank you for the comments, Ed. Feel free to check my other romantic Hubs. :)

      Raciniwa, the emotions are so real, believe me. I better not say how real, because I will blush. Heh. :)

      The poem is about a person who is very real and the feelings run very deep. And the feelings are oh so mutual...

      Thank you for the nice comments. I am a big fan of your wonderful hubs, raciniwa. :)

      Hi Ken, I have been a poet and writer of poems sine I was a young girl. Words just amaze me totally. They have a power. They can do so many things. I like to bring a steady rhythm to some poetry at times.

      I wonder what you would say about my poem "The halfway Space", and its rhymes? You are welcome to read that one. I think you would find it interesting. Yes, sometimes too many rhyming words can act against the intent behind the poem or poet. Emily Dickinson and T.S Eliot abandoned rhyme during their poetry writing careers, and they are worth studying for many things, especially their amazing techniques.

      Yes, love should be playful, as should the words. Words should reflect the people that the words are written for, and beyond them, if possible.

      Oh I am working on the book cover now already. I will be putting it on sale soon this year, I hope.

      Thank you for the comments, Ken. :)

      You are quite the poet! I love how you use rhyme, but not sing-song rhyme, which I feel can sometimes take away from a serious poem. Awesome imagery, and occasionally a playful tone, which is reminiscent of how love can sometimes be! When does your book come out?

      Hi girishpuri, Thank you for the nice comment, and the vote. :)

      @atlovesbm: Sometimes I amaze myself at how the words just seem to dislodge from my brain and arrange themselves for me on the page... Hehehe....

      But truthfully, I took my sweet time writing this out and just let my feelings guide my hand and my words... relying on romantic intuition is scary... but it seems to work for me. i do try to reign in those more ... um... naughty ideas too. :P

      You are a great loyal fan for always reading my poetry hubs. Thank you so much. I love that so many people love my Hub Pages. The pleasure in the Deep is a hub lots of people like. :) This one goes in my book. LOL.

      @Enigmatic Me, yes it is always a dance of words and emotions, and passions with me. Well, poetry should be pleasurable to read, and I don't want my readers falling asleep. Heh. :P Thank you for this.

      @Cheeky Girl Cassy, yes you told me this and you read it 10 times in a row. LOL. And you saw how long this took to write. Believe me when I say that I have beautiful inspiration. :)

      And I love you for supporting me and encouraging me too. And believing in me too. Mwaaaaaah ^_^

      @Nikki, oh Nikki ... you are always so supportive and a kindred spirit poet and writer. Yes, the word "real" is the most important one of all. I love your adjectives here, Nikki. Thank you. *Hugs*

      @writer20, hi Joyce. You are so kind to vote me up. I'm glad you enjoyed my new hub. It makes the writing all the more worthwhile. :)

      @epigramman, oh Colin, I am smiling and laughing now. Um... how do I respond to all this? I will avoid the reference to um fluids ... LOL... but I am smiling at my apparent "hallmark". How did it come to this? Maybe it is the writing from the heart but governing it with the head too. I was saddened to see some good friends losing their hub accounts over things they wrote. You know who they are, Colin. I mean Sannell and Jinny and others.

      I have to reign in the words or they will get away on me. LOL. Words are so magical.

      In the next life, you will appreciate things from the female perspective with luck, and as for orgas.... um... lots of luck with that. Hehehe.... :P

      Your comments are always so full on. And no I don't smoke. You are such a guy, Colin. a tease. And you remind me of someone now. :D

      Oh you said good energy twice, I will share it round. Hugs from me today. :)

      @Carolinemd21, wow I am so happy you said that. LOL. Only a few people ever said that to me. Heh. Bless you Caroline :)

      @Dim, oh really, that is a big compliment, Thank you. I am happy to help promote your books, That goes for everyone here. If you have a book of poetry, let me know. I love your poems and writing, Dim. :)

      @Teylina, you are so sweet to say that. I hope the words do make the reader use her or his imagination. But always within the bounds of acceptability. *Crosses fingers* LOL. I will let everyone know in the hubs and blogs when the book is going on sale and where it's published. Still finalizing small details.

      And yes, I am proud. I envy writers who have published books, and yes it will be so nice to see the book finally. Thank you for the support and encouragement.

      Have a sweet day everyone. You are all so kind. :)

      Hi darling. :)

      Oh I want to be with you now, watching your smile as you read these words... mmmhhh... glossy lips..... I want to kiss you so much, Fehl. This poem took a while to write but It's about us and some dreams about us too... and um... other things ...

      I love you Fehl

      I am sitting here..

      wearing my usual Fehl smile..

      eyes looking and smiling at you - so thankful..

      my lips are glossy but

      I’m out of words..

      Coz I wanna kiss your lips

      and thank you..

      and love you..

      And feel the heat of my breath,

      the warmth of your lips

      bounce back at me..

      I love you, baby.

      Hi Detroitmare, what an interesting name you have. That line is like a summing up of everything that we could ever be - if one sentence could describe most people in this world, besides the two "stars" of my poem. People are people, and love is love. Thank you for the comment, follow, and the vote too. :)

      Hi Eugene, so great to see your comment as always. I will always celebrate my love for my sweet lady. She is my Jewel. :)

      Hi Vincent. Wow, thank you for being first to comment on my brand new poem today. I am smiling reading your description of the affect of the words here. You know as poets we have to use fewer words than most to say things more intensely. So we have to "magnify" their worth and meaning, in special ways. And yes, it helps that I am so in love with the sweet woman I write about in this poem.

      Um yes, we are those kindred spirits you mention, and if you read Fehl's poems too, you will see the same passion in her beautiful words. She is my Angel. :)

      Oh I'm happy to add your amazing book to the hub too, Vincent. Your poetry is so awesome and you have such a way with words. What a lovely first comment to get, ad from you. *Hugs you back*

      This one will be going into my own new poetry book. Coming soon. Have a sweet day, my friend. XO

      This is epic indeed, simply brilliant words you lay before us your followers and fans. My fellow poet I am stimulated and my senses taken somewhere else. Your description of your feelings for your mate excites me with happiness for the both of you. To have these deep feelings only sends thrills through to my soul.

      Love is a miracle that once caught and possessed is a gift everlasting. Your love together is surely blessed, a union between two poets of kindred spirit. Oh how my heart aches to be possessed thus by love of your caliber. I thank your Muse for stirring these wonderful choice of words and verse from deep within your heart and soul. Hugs from Vincent to the both of you. BTW-thank you for presenting my book " In Melancholia" so nice to see it here amongst your brilliant scribe.
