I can’t wait

For hugs and kisses

Warm embraces

Smiles so wide

Excited eyes

Swooning and falling

For romantic gestures

At every turn

But you see for me

It was not meant to be

Never feeling the warm touch of another

Nor the soft lips of a lover

No eyes brightening as I enter a room

No open arms awaiting me

For you see I am a hopeless romantic

Too believing in all those that smile

Too believing in the butterflies in my stomach

Too trusting in the words I love you

Too happy to turn my back on the world for the one

Too young to know there is no such thing as happily ever after

Too old to remember how to dream

Just old enough to know nobody wants something that’s broken

Because loving someone is handing them a map of your weak spots

Why are we hopeless romantics?

Is it so hopeless to want to be loved?

To just want someone to care

To want that storybook romance

To be swept off my feet
