Conquest

These words

Vowels, verbs,

Adjectives

Letters he puts together

To form sentences

To attain that which is not his

A conquest of heart and mind

An appropriation meant to control

Yet delivered with a soft voice

And sweet smile

The barrage shall be met

By battlements she has built

No longer as strong as when

First raised

Rather battle-scarred from

Past attempts to enter her encampment

His surreptitious approach

Is not expected

He ascends her wall

Entering her window with a flourish

Taking what was not his and

Leaving her alone

With nothing but

These words
