Wanted: Superhero

wanted unknown superhero
On top of the mountain’s peak resides her father’s castle

Several years gone by, she never lowers down the gates

Think twice before you knock, after reading the sign outside that says:

“Looking to hire for a superhero on a one contract mission only

Journey the other world and bring back my Papa’s soul home.

Only qualified extraordinary human beings and mutants allowed

        Ring the doorbell if interested.  Take note: no superpowers, no entry”

The ad spreads across the land, superheroes come one after another

None of them make it inside for they’re so unbelievable to be true

Indeed, she padlocks her heart and let the chances pass her by

Not a sole shadow left and the ringing ends, all superheroes move on  

One lonesome and snowy night, she casts a spell to freeze her flesh

Her greatest wish is eternal rest, to be with Papa all over again

The world of the living is inconsequential in the absence of her father

No superpowers work on her and everyone surrenders without goodbyes

***

Then, a kind and persistent traveling salesman appears and reads the sign

He journeys high and low, and no calamities can hinder his goals

He’s determined to win and his motto “every home there’s a possible client”

Whether he’s welcome or not, he rings the doorbell and ignores the sign 

***

Why will she open for him? He’s so ordinary with no first-class abilities

It’s destiny’s trick for it’s so impossible to travel with the weather

As she peeps at her window, she perceives the avalanche coming

What is she thinking? She runs out her door to rescue a stranger

As she stares at his eyes, her heart skips from beating

When he smiles at her, her flesh feels hot and she blushes

At that moment, the forces of nature coincide with destiny

So, she has no other choice but to let him inside her home

***

What do you expect? He’s a salesman and he must do his job

How about her? She’s just another woman who needs to learn 

She purchases not only all his goods but she gives him a lot

For him, she’s a client; while for her, he’s the one she truly loves

A brief time of friendship with plenty of wonderful memories

***

The sun is up again and he must go back home to his beloved

She’s not blind for she knows the truth from the beginning

Though she’s matured and wise, love makes a fool out of her

How much she wants him to stay for she can love him more!

How much she wants him to feel her caress and taste her lips!

The deal is sealed, the traveling salesman is gone from her sight…


Is he a waste of her time or the devil’s crooked gag?

Inside her darkness, her father’s soul makes the scene

“My little darling, I can read your heart and thoughts

You wonder, why you let him in when you know he’ll just go

In spite of all the doubts, you still believe in all his lies

The heartache is so painful but it’s another phase of growth

Now, I’m here  for you are courageous to confront reality

In your heart, I never die and  go on fighting without me

My darling, he’s a traveling salesman but he’s able to save you

Don’t worry, he knows his direction and he’ll always find his way

Give love some time since the one for you is not going anywhere

He comes not to break or take advantage for he’s your superhero”

The deafening sound of the morning rooster marks a new day

Her father’s message repeatedly playing inside her head

Why she never lets Zoro, Wolverine, Spiderman and others in?

Her superhero is unique for his not in tights but wearing a tie!

Perhaps, he comes in the right time for her to write a new chapter

What an amazing friendship that liberates her from self-destruction!

No need for the most powerful hero to let her see her own superpowers

It’s so enjoyable to be out in the sun again! And she takes away the sign—

You Are My Hero

by Eminem Ft. Rihanna “Love The Way You Lie”

There’s something work-related I needed to ask, but I’m afraid you will ignore me again and take it the wrong way.  It is really important but I presume you won’t mind unlike before… I only wish, nothing has changed… Hope you’ll find your way to what you really needed and wanted in life to fulfill your dreams.

“By letting it go it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try. The world is beyond winning.” 

Lao Tzu

“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors for you where there were only walls” 

Joseph Campbell
