The Conquistador

Dejected and broken,

Gazed at the seducing waves of the sea.

With each ebb and flow,

Into the waters, she wanted to flee.

***

One more rejection,

Another failed interview.

Getting a job wasn’t easy,

But that, she already knew.

***

All alone and abandoned,

Tired and hopeless.

No future in sight,

She thought she was worthless.

***

Just when all doors were shut,

Entire world denied her, her dream.

She felt a warm big hand on her head,

Raising her self-esteem.

***

Turned in one swift,

And found her man standing.

With open arms and a big smile,

He was all understanding.

***

She couldn’t refuse,

His open invitation.

Just jumped into his chest,

Without any hesitation.

***

That’s what she wanted right now,

A warm lovely hug.

What better way to get high,

He was her most addictive drug.

***

“There, there, it’s all gonna be okay.

I’m here for you babe.

Don’t worry!”, he said

Like a superman without a cape.

***

No words came out of her mouth,

Just tears rolled down her cheeks.

She could be there in his arms,

If wanted, for days to weeks.

***

With her love by her side,

She wasn’t afraid anymore.

She felt now, like a royal queen,

And him as herΒ conquistador.

***

Invitation
