Real love

There ain’t no buts in real love


I love you but you need to change

I love you but I won’t marry you

I love you but I don’t want your kid

I love you but I must put you down to build me up

I love you but my wife won’t understand

I love you but I will smack you if you make me mad

I love you but you just don’t understand me

I love you but I love her, too

I love you but I want a divorce

I love you but let’s just live together

I love you but it’s just for tonight

I love you but I toss that word around

So that I can get what I want from you.

There ain’t no buts in real love

No buts lead to action and not failure and rejection. Let the word fade out of existance for all I care, it just means unsureness too.

Hi Nan, I read your poem ,"Love Ain't Got No Buts" found it true!
I married my wife who was a divorced woman with three kids in tow. I thought that this lady had enough "buts" in her life. So there weren't
any now, too. Keep up the good work! Please feel free to visit my site at

Yes, on all the above. Exactly! Might I add the one I've gotten,

"I love you but I'm not IN love with you."

Thanks for sharing this Nan.
