Contradicted heart

You think by after a few failed attempts, we would learn by now.
We should learn that our hearts
are just too big for the ones we chose to love,
but decided to leave.

We learn that we are just too
generous with a hundred second chances–
but somehow we learn it is okay,
but it’s not.

Big hearts deserve a great love.

It’s understood,
we give without expecting to receive in return
but maybe we deserve
to reserve this love for ourselves
We deserve to unlearn the ways
of a hopeless romantic.
We deserve to be hopeful.
Because big hearts deserve to win.
