touche!

'touche!', she said
with a smirk
and all i could manage
was a wry smile in response.

i don't even remember
when we started sparring
and why and who
had started it?


this is a game i'm
no good at playing,
but play i must.

i'm not playing to win,
for in losing you
there is no victory.
but if by winning
i win you forever,
then losing to you
is not an option!

@Ps : no you didn't :) (but then maybe something else triggered it... i wonder what?)

@TA : no, we haven't see JA yet! big boss and i are planning to see it soon, hopefully!

@ziah : i guess the fencing image gives that impression. and no, my domestic is fairly domesticated and i'm just a happy bull munching away through the day :P

@brocasarea : neither pal... maybe some dormant impressions just gurgling out somewhere :)

Liar!! I did! I went and checked and I found it here in the comments box.

@ps : looks like you caught me out there :P
but to be honest, i didn't remember that at all! (unless it impacted my subconscious so much that it had to come out like this!) :)
