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 herย conquistador.
