Hopeless Romantic

What is a hopeless romantic, if not a fool?
Clamouring to be won over as if it’s some sort of game,
Waiting expectantly for a prince to valiantly fight for her heart, What is a hopeless romantic, if not naive? Expecting potential suitors to have good hearts and pure intentions,
Swatting off broken promises and empty words,
What is a hopeless romantic, if not brave?
Continuously putting her heart out there if only to be broken once more? Weekly nights spent alone at home, wondering if she is to blame for her loneliness,
What is a hopeless romantic, if not cautious?
Wearing her heart on her sleeve and lingering for fate to intervene?
Half expectant and hopeful things can turn itself around,
What is a hopeless romantic, if not a lover?
Wondering if she sill ever merits a grand romantic gesture,
Open to the many possibilities love can bring,
What is a hopeless romantic, if not me?
