Incurable romantic, that’s what you are,
Fairytales, knights in shining amour, Glass slippers, Damsels in distress and prince charmings are all you believe in, Everything you hope and wish for. No matter how hard the truth hits no matter how many times that fragile heart of yours gets broken, you still believe. Waiting for that day he’ll come and sweep you off your feet.
On the outside you are Miss rational, Miss reasonable, Miss sensible, but you always manage to think with your heart and not your head when it matters the most. Always manage to be gullible when it counts to be wise.
There you go again, drawing that picture of prince charming, looking for every possible chance to play Damsel in distress, in this world where fairytales are nonexistent. I hope you find that Prince of yours in this maze of wolfs and dragons waiting to get what they can and move on.
I wish that fragile heart of yours finds its home, one which it’ll finally rest, free of bruising and battery. At home where it’ll flourish and fill everything it comes across with love.
Incurable romantic is what I call you.
Incurable Romantic” is a phrase I use to describe my older sister with because she just loves “LOVE”. She believes in the one true love: meeting a guy, falling in love and sticking with him against all odds.
You see my sister dated just one guy and she married him. He was her first and only boyfriend and she was his first and only girlfriend. They met in the University and dated for 8years before they got married. She was with him through thick and thin. when he had and when he didn’t, even when He travelled for 2years to the UK, for his Masters she waited patiently for him amidst people’s doubt that he was going to come back for her.
Now she is quick to encourage people around her to do same. Always saying “Be patient, “Give the guy another chance”, “it will work out”.
She never sees anything wrong with waiting for a guy , especially when he is a “Humble beginner”(a term we use to describe a guy that is still trying to find his feet financially).
When I started writing the piece above, and I realized I was actually describing ME!!!
I am the incurable romantic because I too believe in LOVE even if I always deny it in front of my friends. Even if I say to my Family:”Na love person go Chop?”. I believe in fairytales, I believe in Prince charming and Damsels in distress. I believe in love at first sight.(Not that it has ever worked for me). I Believe in falling in love and happily ever after.
I am the unedited, unadulterated INCURABLE ROMANTIC and you will be reading my Dairy. It has some rantings like the piece above (I don’t know if they deserve to be called poetry). Some you might not relate to. I get the urge to write when something affects my emotions deeply.
