Love Should Be Easy

My Broken Heart

I was so attracted to you
that it's clouded my judgment.


Your piercing eyes
pierced my heart,
and I was bleeding dry.


I tried to force you to love me
but you couldn't be controlled.


Love shouldn't be like this

where I pursued you.


Love should be easy;
it should take no effort.


All we had was physical,
we couldn't agree
on the things that mattered.


I just wanted to be happy,
but you left a bitter taste
in my mouth.


You gave me no explanation
so I raked my brain trying
to make sense of what was unspoken.


You bruised my ego
but didn't break my heart.


You did not have permission
to destroy me.
