The Good Stuff

You don’t get to
The good stuff
Of a relationship
On day one.
Far from love at
First sight,
The stuff that really takes
Your breath away
Comes long after
The initial attraction fades from view,
And what remains
Are the precious gems
That only reveal themselves
With time:
Deep trust,
Steady commitment
And a peculiar kind of vulnerability
Where letting someone in
To the messy side of your story
Is somehow
Disarmingly beautiful.
Don’t settle for the fluff
Press in for the good stuff.
