Fencing

“Don’t laugh,”
I giggled,
failing miserably
in my attempt to
keep a straight face.

“You said it,”
he laughed,
eyebrow raised
like a saber
anticipating
the next parry.

“It’s the truth!”
I replied,
trademark pout
spreading across
my face as I shut
the door behind me.

“Uneasy lies the head
that wears the crown,”
he smirked, shrugging
in resignation over
my complicated life.

“Thank god for you,”
my final thrust of
acquiescence.

This battle lost
but not the war.
