Arguing with a lover

And it was during those times
when they went at it
like two boxers before a fight
calling out threats from across the ring

she knew why they called it a thin line
as passion swelled underneath tears

wasn’t long before he swelled underneath her
fighting gives way to frolicking
her hand underneath his –

brief as lines are crossed and uncrossed
promises broken and made again
endings begin and beginnings end.
