The Big Saturday Night Reveal

Heather has a Bachelor's Degree in English from Moravian College and has been freelance writing for more than 13 years.

The work week has come and gone

Saturday has finally arrived on the docket

A plan that has been in the works for months

Finally coming together for an overdue moment

Palms sweatier than the Revenge of the Nerds gang

At their high school proms with the cheerleading squad

Stomach lassoed around the windpipe tighter

Than a Boa Constrictor with its latest bird of prey

Heart ready to do the shortest Bossa nova on record

Legs turned to utter gelatin at the idea of tonight

Opening the vault and spilling out the most personal contents

Inside the most exclusively private safe imaginable

Nothing involving the Hope Diamond or anything like that

But something much more valuable and rarer

Where no price tag can put a label on its value

The thing that The Beatles sang about as the only thing they need

That's right, ladies and gentlemen: love

Could be considered a secondhand emotion in the wrong hands

But for those who never truly said it and meant it

Something more precious entirely

Ready to pull back the curtain and see what comes next

In the real life chapter of this story

Not the fictitious fairy tale world of rainbows and unicorns

However, slow the pace; game for whatever comes

Tired of playing it safe, but not looking to make demands

Let's see where it goes and not worry about following

Any traditional path because tradition is overrated

Learned that the hard way; now sticking with breaking the rules.

The pinnacle of beauty and price at the same time.

The pinnacle of beauty and price at the same time.
