Opposite of gentle
Hazard to my health
Mainly my mental

Adrenaline to my veins
My favorite source of pain
Beyond insane
You stay on my brain

And even though you’re who’s toxic
I’ll take the blame
Cause only a fool
Would want your last name

When we touch
Not a single feeling
Not even lust

When we speak
Nothing between us
That’s worth to keep

For the very first time
Empty, Deadweight
As you kiss inbetween my thighs

But I wish I loved you
Unfortunately though darling
That won’t ever be true

Test Drive
Erica Girone Nov 2018
I can feel the emptiness in your smile
Don’t know anymore if this will last a while
I understand your confusion
My own heart’s in a delusion
Don’t hurt me
I know the lies from your eyes
I see the end, I can’t comprehend

I wanted you for a long ride
You wanted to test drive
Told me I was a familiar soul
I’d rather die than see you go
Left one last kiss on your lips
Suddenly I’m okay again
Clinging to false realities
Our story, A modern day tragedy

Oh, lover but you left me burned
Oh, pain but you helped me learn
Said I’d see you again but never returned
Time for my heart to come to terms
I’m on my own again your silence confirmed
I only trust myself
No more losing me to someone else

I would never let you see me cry
Won’t tell you I’m hurt I’d rather lie
So instead of explaining I’ll say goodbye
I’ll roll up my green and I’ll get high
One day you’re going to realize
Broken hearts heal over time
But you can’t change your mind

Ride or Die
Erica Girone Dec 2018
You said ride or die
But when I call no reply
And people wonder
Why others fantasize suicide
Just longing for a peace a mind
Or someone who thinks we’re worth the time
Takes our old definition of love and redefines
What we’ve been taught all our lives

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
842 · Jun 19
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

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
670 · Mar 2019
Erica Girone Mar 2019
On the outside I’m strong
Inside I’m fading
I say nothing’s wrong
While completely breaking
I laugh along
Like my heart isn’t aching
I don’t belong
In this world of faking
646 · Mar 2019
Erica Girone Mar 2019
They tell me to be happy
To laugh & act care free
They tell me I’ll feel better
Why can’t they just leave me be?

They tell me to be happy
As if it should be easy for me
They tell me I’m not trying
I can’t help but disagree

They tell me to be happy
If I go to therapy they guarantee
That it will fix all my problems
Which sounds so silly to me

They tell me to be happy
I tell them I’m just fine
Sometimes there’s beauty in suffering
And I’ve found mine in rhyme

Paper And Pen
Erica Girone Nov 2018
I feel safe with my paper and pen
They’ve never let me down and are unable to offend
Never given me false promises or broken dreams
Never left me hysterically crying like that time in my teens
Never told me I love you only to say goodbye
Never left me questioning myself or wondering why
Never told me that I wasn’t good enough and deserved to die
They’ve only given me peace after a really rough time
So for anyone hurting give writing a try
It’s worth it to express what’s eating you inside
Before you let it take over and completely lose your mind
Once you let it all out you’ll understand why
442 · Dec 2018
Self Control
Erica Girone Dec 2018
Self Control
Have I lost it?
The second I have a grip
I slip
I fall so deep
I make a home where I land
And only end up further down
Than where I began
At times I’ll get the energy
To take a step in the right direction
Almost reaching the top
While fighting off depression
But then the weakness overcomes me
Self Control is lost
And I’m back to square one
Right where I begun
435 · Nov 2018
Erica Girone Nov 2018
I don’t remember peace
Chaos has never left my side
Not ever a sense of release
Not ever a place to hide
Watching my joy decrease
As my age multiples
I can feel myself breathing
But am I truly alive

There’s something beautiful in being awake while the world is sleeping

Liar liar
You’re what I desire
Toxic to the soul
But flame to my fire

User user
My favorite abuser
Full of empty promises
And a professional seducer

Her Love
Erica Girone Nov 2018
Her love was like a song
But this one felt wrong
With a melody entirely out of tune
And a chorus filled with gloom

Her love was like a light
But this one didn’t shine bright
In fact at times not at all
She had too many barriers and walls

Her love some how was my favorite kind
Although it only messed with my mind
I would exaggerate all the great
While ignoring all that I would hate

Her love wasn’t complete
With everyone new she’d meet
She’d place her insecurities onto
So each one ended too soon

Her love was one I’ll miss
Since I still feel the imprints of her kiss
But unless she can love herself
I’ll have to find love in someone else
397 · Sep 28
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

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

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

The girl in the mirror
Her eyes are a sea
Deep are the feelings
That lie underneath

Erica Girone Jun 17
Every time I see you
My eyes reveal the secrets
That my heart is trying to hide
295 · Mar 21
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
295 · May 15
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

Perfect Two
Erica Girone Nov 2018
Hours felt like days
Sentences turned into stories
Finding comfort in each other’s sorrow
Allowing you into my territory

Felt something different
A feeling that was new
Should’ve known from the start
You were too good to be true

Some say I’m a hopeless romantic
So I didn’t want to accept the truth
That the person you showed me
Was someone other than you

Held onto what I knew
Until I pushed the truth out of you
Instead of a fairytale
The story of us was through

Short but heavy
Strangers but we knew
There in that moment
We were the perfect two
273 · May 2019

You’re loveless
Yet I’m expected to love you

Beautifully Broken
Erica Girone Jan 2019
Shattered glass
Personalities masked
Normal on the outside
But her feelings contrast
Salt water tears
Familiar on her skin
From fighting a battle
She won’t ever win
Ripped t shirts
Bruised arms and knees
Constant reminders
Of what shouldn’t be
Beautifully broken
She smiles through the pain
One day there will be sunshine
After all this rain
248 · Feb 2019

Knowing the absence of what was
Is better than feeling nothing at all
I wonder if the trees feel the same way
When the leaves begin to fall
227 · Nov 2018

Never have I known
Beauty such as your own
223 · Apr 19
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
213 · Sep 2019
Erica Girone Sep 2019
You’re like coffee in the morning and cartoons on a Saturday
Breakfast at dinner time and warm weather on winter days
Everything right in my world when it all went the opposite way
My sense of peace, the remedy to make my worries fade away
209 · Oct 7
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

Scared of being alone
Erica Girone Jul 2019
We went from I love you to leave me the hell alone
From savoring every moment but now we’re glued to our phones
Staying together just because we’re scared of the unknown
Staying together just because we’re scared of being alone
202 · Dec 2018
Erica Girone Dec 2018
Half truths
Are full lies
199 · Apr 2019
Erica Girone Apr 2019
You cannot hide
What resides inside
Anger and pain
Resentment and shame
Placing all your blame
For your personal gain
But karma’s a *****
And she gets her way
181 · Aug 2019
Erica Girone Aug 2019
I want to tell you I miss you
I want to admit my wrongs
I want to tell you I love you
I want to see you just because
I want to be the bigger person
But I’m still scared of the aftermath
Don’t want our situation to worsen
Can’t chance losing my other half
I don’t know how to tell you
In a way you’d now understand
We used to do everything together
You used to be my right hand
I miss you more than ever
Feels like I lost my best friend
Please don’t change my meaning of forever
Because our love was never supposed to end

But everything is okay
The ocean is crashing in on me
But I’m embracing each wave

Push Through
Erica Girone Aug 2019
Pretending to be okay
Just to get through the day
However the tears filling my eyes
Reveal the truth buried inside
I’m devastated, alone, and afraid
But this is the bed I made
And although I’d rather die
This is something I need to survive
164 · Nov 2019
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
159 · Jul 2019
I wonder
Erica Girone Jul 2019
I wonder at times if you miss me
If you ever get the urge to kiss me
It seems that you’ve dismissed me
Or is that what you’re trying to convince me

Living Nightmare
Erica Girone Mar 2019
She’s a ripped page from my journal
The song I always skip
It’s not that I don’t miss her
I’m just emotionally unequipped
She still visits me daily
But never in my dreams
Only in my nightmares
Where I awake in screams
Beautiful Brown eyed girl
With a devil’s snare
She has cruel intentions
But beauty beyond compare
I wish I could forget her
Her memory tortures me everyday
One second she was my everything
And the next she ran away
151 · Apr 11
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

People pleaser
To appease her
I’ll never reach her
Make her a believer
I should leave her
But I’m a dreamer
At her leisure
A high fever
Making me weaker
Perfect schemer
Make you need her
Always seek her
Falling deeper
Soul stealer

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

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
137 · May 2019
Erica Girone May 2019
Too stubborn to let go
Too weak to break free
Too anxious to say no
Too opinionated to agree

Stuck in Place
Erica Girone May 2019
It’s hard to find an escape
While your feet are stuck in place
123 · Apr 2019
Erica Girone Apr 2019
Sometimes the best decision
Is the hardest to follow through
The path to finding myself
Was also the one to losing you

I was too fixated on finding you I lost myself in the process

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
115 · Jun 2019
This moment
Erica Girone Jun 2019
Green clouds
Summer’s day
Ocean blue eyes
Glass ashtray
Everything feels alright
For once it’s okay
Living in this moment
Instead of yesterday

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
