The Game Changer

It was a fair fight until then, until the bomb.

The two sides traded blows, the sparring tongues of lovers.
Playful exchanges like scraps between brothers.
Never saw it coming; no guard posted for sight of the horizon.
Who would expect an advance so brazen? Sudden

time

slowed

Eyes widened, as it dropped

The infamous L-bomb
that changed the game beyond all expectation
The fling: flung
and in its place:

“I love you,” she said
and his defences crumbled like bombed bricks.
