no short cuts

because love doesn’t offer
short cuts

you either earn it
or it was never really real

my object is to grow to love
who you are

not who i want you
to be

you are beautiful
like rainbows do exist

but there are spectrums to it
that i will never get
to see

like the part of you
that thinks disqualifies you
from being perfect
as perfect can be

but that doesn’t make you
any less perfect
to me

love isn’t about regret
it’s team work

and instilling confidence
in your significant other

be significant

because there are
no short cuts

to a broken heart
of another
