Things get better
Miss X May 2020
Call it law of attraction
luck
or fate

It took me two years

But
I finally believe in love again

third date
Miss X May 2020
not saying you're perfect
but the way you
shook your head at me last night
kissing my cheek
joking about my choice of wine
still makes me blush today

not saying you're perfect
but the way you
stood in the doorway last night
kissing me goodbye
smirking at me
still gives me butterflies today

not saying you're perfect
but you are

We forgot
Miss X Jul 2016
And one day you forget
What it was like the first day
catching feelings
and walking around
trying to find the perfect café

And you forget
What it was like
going through spring with Vivaldi,
cameo jackets and each other's love

We forgot

We forgot
How we used to write poetry
How we used to fall asleep on the phone
How we used to find names for our kids
How we used to discuss the holes in Swiss cheese
How we talked about
we would never become one of those couples
who would forget

But we forgot

just you and me

Successful Woman
Miss X Nov 2014
Eyes blank and hands cold
she sits alone in a furnished room
a closet full of Louis Vuitton
but not a man in her sight

Money fly through the air
but yet there is no one to care
Sore feet and a hot engine
but no one there
at the end of the day
to take care of her poor heart

Luckiest Girl
Miss X Sep 2014
I am the luckiest girl alive, not because I have a closet full of designer brands and a shelf lined with classical works, I am lucky because I have you in my life, lucky because I get to see your pretty blue eyes for the rest of my life, lucky because I am the one who makes you laugh and even luckier because you make me feel alive. I still remember how we sat at that bench, two hours of pure love, ignoring the world and not paying attention to the beautiful garden, at that moment (and even before that) I was sure that I was the luckiest girl alive, feeling your lips on mine, feeling your smile as we kiss and your enchanting eyes.

I love you
not because you are beautiful
nor because your voice is the best sound I have ever heard
I love you because you have the purest heart
I am truly the luckiest girl

Autumn
Miss X Sep 2014
Sometimes I like to imagine
us drinking hot chocolate
with too much whipped cream
You wearing a grey knitted sweater
and me wearing the biggest smile

All the tiny kisses
on my lips
on my nose
"Baby,
you have whipped cream everywhere!"

When he left for the army

without my love

It feels like hundred days

Will I survive

Good morning
Miss X Aug 2014
When the daylight
hits your window
you suddenly realize
yesterday was only temporary
and now is today

the wind has shifted its directions
and nothing
will ever come close to
yesterday

Good morning mind
have you finally escaped
your bubble?

When a Human meets Love
Miss X Aug 2014
A human being
is nothing
but meat and bones
until the day
it touches love
for the first time
and transforms into
a personality
something beyond
what is read in the
human DNA

Dying Souls
Miss X Aug 2014
And even though it all looks picture perfect
we all carry fire arms strong enough to ****
The truth of humanity is not in our biology
it begins the day our butterflies give our soul away
It is beyond Sigmund Freud and Albert Bandura
it is the indescribable, the undeniable, the supernatural
The complex relationship between two loving souls
it is the power of one soul killing the other
leaving nothing but a human being made of meat and bones
The truth of humanity lies in love

Hunters of love
Powerful enough to **** a soul
and carry on

Coup de Foudre
Miss X Aug 2014
When I met him I heaved a sigh of relief
like the feeling you get when the plane lands after a four hour flight
you are safe
you are home
it was a feeling of being saved
from a life
where misery and loneliness were a daily meal

He grabbed me before I fell down the stairs
and unconsciously his sweet scent hypnotized me
and his voice comforted my soul

Not even actors in a Hollywood movie
but it was love at first sight
and at that moment I knew
I no longer had to worry
I was loved

Nothing to lose but you
Miss X Aug 2014
Honey
I wish I could save you
from getting hurt
but what do I do
when I am the reason
for your bleeding heart

Have you ever thought
of living without me
I have
and it felt like lava
running over me
the world getting
pitch-dark
and my soul
turning into dust

There's no heaven
waiting for me after death
if I am to spend the time
without you

How many times
can a person die
before it disappears
Aug 2014 · 328
Either/or
Miss X Aug 2014
When lying wide awake at night

either

your heart is broken

Please stop
Miss X Jul 2014
We got together
a cold winter day
on the sixteenth

Our lips concealed
not revealing
how we really feel

The world
would not understand
what this love is about

Oh please
Spare me with your
conservative thoughts
about what's right and wrong

You are not us
Go watch
your pretty rose garden
But
be careful with the thorns

Karma is alluring
in the corner
of every stone

Dead before suicide
Miss X Jun 2014
From the 41st floor
she looked down
she fell
and she fell
boy, how she fell
Felt the wind in her hair
In her stomach
In her entire body
But she never hit ground
because
she was already a dead soul
Unable to feel pain
Unable to be happy
Unable to feel alive

Dear God
Miss X Jun 2014
I pray to a God I don't believe in

Desperately, I pray that he will bring

Erase all the physical boundaries
and sew our hands together forever

Invincible kind of love
Miss X May 2014
She was crazy
    and he was sane
but they loved each other
more than husband and wife
beyond the furthest edge of
the universe

But put two stubborn
people together
and suddenly
    you will have trouble
the kind that make you
want to roll your eyes
as well as melt your heart

It turns out
that crazy and sane equals
not only trouble
but love beyond what is human
beyond what is seen before
           completely invincible

Dressing up
Miss X May 2014
Her feet hurt
from wandering around
in 4 inches high heels
trying to impress guys
that are impossible to impress
Wearing too much make-up
on that doll face of hers
never giving up
on trying to please
everyone else's interests
instead of looking at her own

At 3 am
She gets home
Finally grounded again
she takes of her mask
shows her true self
to the mirror
Miss X Apr 2014
I wish I was as talented
as the man who made me a poet
If I had never met him
Never felt his love
I would not be here
I would not write
I would not live

But I really wish I was as talented
as the man who made me a poet
The way he paints words
on a piece of blank paper
The way he colors my world
with his eloquence and his long
list of unknown adjectives

He made me write
He made me live

If one day I could be half as good
possess half of his talent in me
I'd be happier than a bird
with a french fry

Unrequited love

Our song
Miss X Apr 2014
Whenever I turn on the radio
and hear the sound of our song
a feeling of happiness spreads
in my entire body
butterflies in my stomach
arms, legs and even toes

It reminds me of your laugh
your sweet smile as you imitate
the voice of the singer
It reminds me of how I feel
how reminded I am
that I want to spend forever
with you

Jealousy

I see ***** girls
lusting after my boyfriend
I see them sending winks

some extra tanned skin
lace bras and bright red lipsticks
and heels higher than my self esteem

Maybe it is jealousy
Or maybe it is reality
One thing I know for sure;
I'm definitely going crazy

Truth
Miss X Apr 2014
She wanted death to grasp her without saying goodbye
Only for a sad, distant moment
until she realized it would be a crime
to the love of her life.

She did not want death, it was all an inner lie,
she wanted a white fenced house,
and their children running around in diapers,
screaming 'daddy'  and enjoying their life.

My world
Miss X Apr 2014
He has painted all of the walls in my world
into the beautiful, captivating colors of the rainbow.
Never have I felt more comfortable waking up,
seeing all the beauty around me, reminding me of him.
He is the kind of knight who came unexpectedly,
I, a lost princess, had never heard a single fairy tale in my life,
never thought an amazing man like him existed,
never thought of life as enchantingly beautiful.

He is
the sweet taste in my tea,
the big smile on my lips,
the nail polish on my nails,
the floral cologne on my neck,
the sugary taste in my candy,
the blue color on a clear sky,
the loud laugh in a tiny room,
the perfect sourness in my apple,
the oxygen in my lungs

He is absolutely everything in my world.

Scream for love
Miss X Apr 2014
Her thoughts have been poisoned by darkness
Everyone believes
death will be upon them soon
Have they given up?
Don't they know
they have the ability to brighten her world?
They are the medicine
The antibiotics
which can save her life

She does not want death to grasp her
She wants them to save her  
stroke her hair
prove her
that everything is going to be alright

No
they confuse
pessimism
sadness
depression
with suicide

This is a scream for love

Love her

My dear love
Miss X Apr 2014
My dear love
There are not enough stars in the world
which are able to represent
all the times
I have hurt your feelings
Once I open my mouth
poison comes out
shadowing a beautiful and bright day.

There are not enough paper in the world
for me to write my apology letter for you
My body is filled with words I want to say
but I am not sure
my vocabulary is sufficiently eloquent
to express all the thoughts
that have run through my head

My dear love
I hope you know that I love you
More than any woman
has ever loved another man
If I could
I would hand you the entire world
I swear I would

This poem is going to sew my mouth together
thus
"I love you"
will be the only words you will ever hear
from me again
The only words
I should ever have spoken to you

My dear love
I beg you please
show me forgiveness
even if I don't deserve it
