No Shortcuts

Love Blossoms

I like to meander,

enjoy the ride

even if it’s a bumpier one.


I like to feel

the breeze in my hair

on this winding highway. 


Why take the easy road

when it’s so much more fun

getting lost with you.


Let’s be reckless

for a little while,

who cares if we crash?


I see the cliff just off

your shoulder,

yet I don’t care.


Maybe this will be

the end of us,

but I don’t mind risking it.
