I’ll Never Be That Easy Kind Of Love (And That’s Okay)

Taylor Bryant

You wanted someone easy

Someone you didn’t have to work hard to get

Someone who you didn’t have to court

Someone you didn’t have to try for

And those are the exact reasons why we couldn’t work

You didn’t want to work hard for us

You didn’t want to change for us

You didn’t want to court me

You didn’t want to try for my love anymore

And that’s why we didn’t work

why we couldn’t work

You didn’t want to work at yourself

You wanted someone easy

You wanted someone to take you for what you were

To take what you gave

You wanted someone to allow you to do what you wanted with their heart

You wanted someone to not listen to when they asked you to change

You wanted someone who was easy to ignore

You wanted someone easy

And I will never be easy

I refuse to be easy

I refuse to be simple

I refuse to be sedentary

I refuse mediocrity

I demand adventure

I demand spontaneity

I demand self-expression

I demand to be with someone who wants all of those things of me and more

We all deserve to be with someone who pushes our boundaries, who allows us to explore aspects of ourselves that we want to set free.

I demand to be with someone who will allow me to be free and uncomplicated.

I demand to be with someone who feels like an all-consuming, everlasting, safe and yet freeing love.

I will always want someone to try to love me

I will always want someone who hears me

I will always want someone who tries hard for me

I demand all of someone’s heart

I demand every aspect of your being

I will always want more out of you, always question what you’re feeling, asking you questions you find hard to answer.
