Erica Girone Oct 7
Playing without me on repeat
Wondering why I allowed you to make me weak
Used to think you were my strength
But really you were my defeat
Used to be my confidant
But you’re my deceit
Sep 30 · 39
Erica Girone Sep 30
I think pretending is worse than sadness
There’s a freedom in expressing
And a pain in pretending
I don’t mind being sad
If I am allowed to embody it
Without judgement
Without guilt
Without pretending
Sep 30 · 30
Erica Girone Sep 30
I blocked you from my social
Burned all your clothes
Threw away every love letter
Deleted you from my phone
Tried to dead you in every way possible
But whenever I’m on my own
Every memory of you plays in my head
So I’m never truly alone
Sep 28 · 397
Erica Girone Sep 28
Darling don’t be a fool
You may love them
But do not do for others
What they wouldn’t do for you

You may love them
But you need to love yourself too
Sep 23 · 18
Erica Girone Sep 23
You’ve got me feeling like a fiend
Your touch, I crave it, it’s all I need
Without it, I can’t help but feel incomplete
I’ve got a hunger that only you can feed
You toy me around
You must enjoy the sound
Of desperation in my voice
It brings you satisfaction and joy
Knowing with just a look you can destroy
Every ounce of dopamine
Left in my body
Tell me how does it feel
To hold that kind of power over me

Erica Girone Sep 16
She’s one with the moon
She feels at home in the night
Like a flower in the sun she blooms
When she’s away from the daylight
Sep 2 · 95
Erica Girone Sep 2
She radiates melancholy
But with a smile on her face
Trying her best to be warm
With a distant cold embrace

I have got to say
I truly love her strength
God knows, she’s breaking
All with a smile on her face
Sep 2 · 26
Erica Girone Sep 2
She fell in love with Pennsylvania rain
New York lights
Colorado mountains from a plane
California in pictures
And New Jersey for more reasons than she could explain
No matter where this world takes her
In New Jersey a piece of her heart will always remain
Aug 29 · 23
Erica Girone Aug 29
She just wants to be loved
She longs to be seen
She has a heart of gold
She often wears it on her sleeve
She tends to come off too strong
Like a cheap whiskey drink
She’s gone through too many friends
And collects them like her old cd’s
And on the days she’s feeling lonely
She revisits the memories
She’s lost the glimmer of hope
She once had in her teens
Sometimes she even has moments
Where she forgets how to breathe
She just wants to be loved
She longs to be seen
She craves a hand to hold
Because of how difficult life can be
Aug 29 · 42
Erica Girone Aug 29
Every time I think it couldn’t get worse
It does
It feels like the world is testing me
But with each heartache
The stronger I become
Aug 22 · 28
Fire & Ice
Erica Girone Aug 22
My girl is sweet but full of spice
Unapproachable cover
She embodies both fire and ice
Complicated yet worth it
She sends me out of my mind
She doesn’t want to commit
But I don’t mind wasting my time
Aug 19 · 20
Erica Girone Aug 19
I look in the mirror
I’m more than what you see
There’s so much behind the eyes
Staring back at me
There’s numerous bad decisions
And also lessons learned
There’s first times and repetition
And also bridges burned
There’s betrayal and there’s love
There’s loneliness and there’s drugs
Some good and some bad
Happiness with the sad
Lost lovers and forgotten friends
Unforgettable summers
And wounds that will never mend
Aug 5 · 332
Erica Girone Aug 5
The girl in the mirror
Her eyes are a sea
Deep are the feelings
That lie underneath
Jul 30 · 17
Red pill, blue pill
Erica Girone Jul 30
To take the red
Or the blue
To learn the world all over again
Or to not have a clue
Is there bliss in not knowing
Or bliss in the truth
To see the world for what it’s not showing
Or to live your life as a fool
Jul 19 · 38
Erica Girone Jul 19
Everything seems to happen so fast
Just filled my tank and I’m already out of gas
Feels like life’s just begun but my youths already passed
Time is a concept I still have not been able to truly grasp
Jul 10 · 41
Erica Girone Jul 10
You’ve made me numb
To the thought of anyone
Thanks for the eternal scar
Jul 7 · 19
Erica Girone Jul 7
I’ve forgotten what it’s like
To smile with true meaning
I smile now only to hide the feeling
Of the hurt that’s harboring inside
Jun 30 · 39
Erica Girone Jun 30
No amount of distance
Will separate you
From those who believe
You’re worth the time
Jun 30 · 107
Erica Girone Jun 30
Where I long to be
Since the stresses of the world
Keep weighing down on me

My soul finally free
I dream of the very day
Oblivion and I finally meet
Jun 28 · 61
Erica Girone Jun 28
The weight is heavy
When you have a heart
In a heartless world
Jun 23 · 41
Erica Girone Jun 23
If only I could bottle her spirit
And save it for the days I need it
I would never be sad again
Jun 20 · 73
Erica Girone Jun 20
When did we start to hide
The feelings we experienced inside
When did we learn to fear
The people we kept near
When did our dreams start to change
And our thoughts rearrange
When was the final day
Our innocence went away
Jun 19 · 842
Erica Girone Jun 19
She comes in all flavors
Some comforting
Some sour
Some from suffering
Some from power
Some colorful
And some dull
Some high
And some low
But each one
Makes up the beautiful girl
That I know
Jun 17 · 306
Erica Girone Jun 17
Every time I see you
My eyes reveal the secrets
That my heart is trying to hide
Jun 12 · 145
Erica Girone Jun 12
You need to watch how you spend your time
Putting others first and leaving yourself behind
Ignoring red flags and misreading the signs
Granting others serenity only to lose your own mind

Growing Pains
Erica Girone Jun 9
Going through these growing pains
Where nothing quite feels the same
Lost some friends along the way
But moving onto another day

I’m going through these growing pains
In order to bloom first it needs to rain
Learned some lessons along the way
And left the old me at bay

Going through these growing pains
Nothing left to lose only to gain
Where I am now is where I need to be today
And everything is going to be okay

Cotton Candy
Erica Girone May 31
She dreams of a world
With cotton candy swirls
For skies
Bubble gum beaches
And hellos
Without the goodbyes
May 15 · 171
Erica Girone May 15
Nothing is alright
But everything is okay
The ocean is crashing in on me
But I’m embracing each wave
May 15 · 295
I’m sorry
Erica Girone May 15
I’m sorry I can’t take away your pain
I’m sorry I don’t understand
I know it’s rough and you can’t explain
I just wish I could lend a hand
It tears me apart to watch you cry
And not know the right words to say
I know some days you just want to die
But pretend you’re completely okay
I want you to know you’re loved beyond measure
And you brighten each and every one of my days
You make life worth living and so much better
I just wish you saw it that way
Apr 19 · 223
Erica Girone Apr 19
She took care of me
And I took advantage
She was my clarity
I took her for granted
Thought she’d never leave me
Since she knew all my damage
But she finally stop believing in me
Because her heart, I mismanaged
Apr 11 · 151
Erica Girone Apr 11
Breathe, be still
The sun is shining
The sky is blue
The day might be difficult
But tomorrow is brand new
Still today is the day you were given
So enjoy it before it’s through
Find joy in every moment

Second Nature
Erica Girone Apr 6
So accustomed to getting taken advantage of
It’s become like second nature
To have the world ripped from my finger tips
In just the matter of minutes
Apr 4 · 44
One minute
Erica Girone Apr 4
It’s crazy how in one minute
Everything can change
One minute I loved you
Now I can’t look at you the same

Last year lovers
Today our love is in vain
Trusted you with every secret
And now it’s a crying shame

Lips once glued to one another
Now are used to complain
About how terrible the other is
Both claiming to be the only one sane

One minute you were my everything
My number one, my main
Funny how life plays out sometimes
In just one minute, it all can change
Mar 29 · 112
Your funeral
Erica Girone Mar 29
It kills me to grieve you
While you’re still breathing
No funeral for closure
Heart’s still beating
Learning you in pictures
Remembering you in frames
A couple years from now
Will you even know my name
Forever has lost its meaning
It won’t ever be the same
This crippling loneliness is defeating
Convincing me I’m the one to blame
But today it’s time to move on
And releasing you is the only way
So I’ll bury you in the past where you belong
And in the past is where you’ll stay
Mar 21 · 295
Erica Girone Mar 21
Words to me are everything
But different in each persons view
The meaning behind what I say runs deep
I cannot say the same for you
You’re full of sweet nothings
Beautiful to hear but untrue
Didn’t anyone teach you growing up
That’s the one thing you should never do
Mar 6 · 53
Erica Girone Mar 6
I wish I could take all your pain
Have it wash away with the rain
Roll you a jay, pour a glass of Cabernet
And fly us to a private get away
One where our worries are pushed aside
We’d laugh about non sense enjoying the ride
We’d have nothing to fear, no need to hide
Just joyful hearts and smiles stretched wide
I’d carry all the weight for you if I could
I know you feel trapped and misunderstood
Truthfully you deserve all things that are good
But this life doesn’t always go the way that it should
So lean on me when you don’t know what to do
I promise there’s nothing I wouldn’t endure for you
The journey in front of us is rough but it’s a wonderful view
Because after the storm, the sky goes back to being blue
Mar 5 · 390
Erica Girone Mar 5
You level me out, you set me free
When things don’t go my way you encourage me to see
That nothing is ever as bad, as I believe it to be
Mar 5 · 48
Erica Girone Mar 5
Hopeless, but hopeful
Feb 18 · 47
Erica Girone Feb 18
I wonder if you think of me
When the sun no longer shines
When the ocean waves meet your feet
When you read a clever rhyme

I wonder if you miss me
On a cold February day
On the nights you need someone to talk to
When the world doesn’t go your way

I wonder how you remember me
Like a flower in the breeze
Or a home caught in a hurricane
Bringing civilians to their knees

I wonder how you’re doing
If true love has swept you off your feet
If you’ve finally found real happiness
If this is it or again we’ll meet
Feb 16 · 50
The chase
Erica Girone Feb 16
So much to give
No one to give it to
Tearing myself apart
Wasn’t good enough for you
You live for the chase
I just wanted something true
I opened up my heart
You decided we were through

To you there’s no fun in winning
You crave the adrenaline of the race
And once you’ve passed the finish line
You let the prize go to waste
You spun me like a record
You played me like a tape
Silly me for believing
I couldn’t be replaced
Feb 12 · 44
Rare to Find
Erica Girone Feb 12
Rose petal tears
She’s even beautiful when she cries
Although it kills me to see her upset
It pains me to watch her wipe her own eyes
Miss independent
She never needed anyone else’s advice
She’s always been on her own
Ever since she’s been alive
I wish she saw what I saw
Maybe then she’d have some peace of mind
But the trauma she’s experienced
Is buried deep within her inside
But still she loves whole heartedly
Like she was never hurt a day in her life
I admire that about her
A girl like her is rare to find
Feb 12 · 149
The edge
Erica Girone Feb 12
On the edge
I’m losing control
Part of me is terrified
The other wants to let go
What will be will be
This I already know
So why can’t I
Just let it be so
Feb 3 · 37
To be a kid
Erica Girone Feb 3
To be a kid again
For everything to feel new
Colorful holidays
Saturday cartoons
Imaginary houses
Wash off tattoos
Never would’ve thought
It’d leave me so soon
Jan 30 · 49
Erica Girone Jan 30
It’s like losing a battle before it’s begun
Trying to speak while holding your tongue
When the sun is shining but hidden behind clouds
One second you’re so high and the next so far down
Pouring rain on a day all you want is the beach
It’s constantly chasing a destination you can’t seem to reach
Dying everyday but somehow you’re alive
It’s wanting to give up, but still you survive
Jan 19 · 900
Erica Girone Jan 19
Loving her was blue
Each day a different shade
Today feels more like the ocean
While yesterday had a tint of gray
My favorite is at her brightest
Although I’ll take her any way
No matter what her tone is
I still love her just the same
Jan 12 · 51
Cause and effect
Erica Girone Jan 12
I forgive you
But I’m not over it yet
My heart still hurts
It’s not easy to forget
The pain you caused
The damage you’ve left
The sorrow lingering on
Cause and effect
Nov 2019 · 164
For you
Erica Girone Nov 2019
I’d lay down and die for you
Take the stand and lie for you
Waste all my time for you
No mountain I wouldn’t climb for you
Nov 2019 · 118
Beauty in the Struggle
Erica Girone Nov 2019
There’s beauty in the cracks
This life has taught me that
It’s okay to lose yourself
As long as you find your way back
Trials and tribulations
This world will surely attack
But don’t ever give up
Always remain on track
You’ll stumble, you’ll fall
Some days you’ll feel big
And others you’ll feel small
At times it might feel like there’s no one at all
But this too shall pass, be brave, stand tall
Oct 2019 · 57
Erica Girone Oct 2019
It’s incredible how much pain you can harbor
Without a single person being aware
Oct 2019 · 52
What’s the point
Erica Girone Oct 2019
What’s forever without meaning?
It’s hollow-hearted and misleading
What’s love without believing?
Only fabricated and deceiving

What’s friendship without support?
What good is a car if it can’t transport?
What’s selflessness if you’re self absorbed?
What’s concern if you’re only ever ignored?

What’s a rainbow if you only view in black & white
What good is the day if you’re only awake at night
What’s the point if you’re only acting out of spite
Why even explain the truth, if you lost your sense of sight
