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
Can you remember when you were here?
I haven’t experienced any worse
I maybe should feel relieved
But I have never believed
That being free from your
Would mean emptiness
s Willow Jan 2019
Paleness on ex-lover’s face,
Our impassable fate brought.
In madness,
He’s missing from his holy palace.

Everyone is living their fairytale
While I’m living in hell
Come back to me already
Let's make this right
Mend this hole and close it tight
No one has to ever know
The deep cuts created
The harmful words spoke
Let’s go back to the way things were
Before you shattered my heart
Before everything between you and me fell apart
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

Emotionless
When we touch
Not a single feeling
Not even lust

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

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

Emotionless
But I wish I loved you
Unfortunately though darling
That won’t ever be true
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
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
Erica Girone Nov 2018
Detrimental
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
Olivia Christine Oct 2017
I was really hoping that I would be good enough for you
You made me feel beautiful, invincible
Then you left me out to wilt, like cheap flowers
You broke me into pieces
I won't be able to piece myself together
So I'll crawl back to you
Hoping you can piece me together
You put some of the pieces back, but by the end of the night I'm broken again
I wanted to be good enough for you
For us.
Where did I go so wrong?
I can't do this; living without your presence
So I'll just plaster on a smile, act happy
And nobody will know I'm broken without you
I hope you find someone better than what I tried to be
I miss you, and I always will
Goodbye... but not forever.
It's hard to be "just friends" with someone you're in love with...
