Meticulously Rehearsed

I was prepared
I had it all planned out
Every word
Every gesture
Meticulously rehearsed
Till word perfect

I was prepared
For excitement
Unconfined joy
Tears of happiness
Words of love
And utter delight

I wasn’t prepared
For your reaction
Your unkind words
Your gestures
Tears of laughter
And utter rejection

A carefully prepared romantic gesture is not met with the enthusiasm that is anticipated.
