Learning From past Mistakes!

I know what you were thinking the
moment you shattered my heart
I still remember that stupid smirk
believing I’d never trust again

There was a time when I would agree
with what you carelessly tossed away
But it was you who was wrong thinking
that I wasn’t worth loving

I know what’s inside my heart and the
things that await that special someone
The only barrier to me being held is the
courage to give someone a chance

Once we’re hurt the memories of what
once was and came to an end
Try their hardest to say it ain’t worth it
But I know it is or could be one day

But the players and heart slayers are waiting
for someone as naïve as me
All because I don’t believe the next one
I meet won’t play me like a fool

I know what I could offer them if only they are
willing to give back to me
A smile, a touch, a hug, a kiss, oh how they’d
see a sparkle in my eyes

It wouldn't take much from them to bring this
heart of mine back to life
If only they knew how much they scare me
maybe they’d understand my hesitation
