You break them into separate items. You can always force a line break with the raw troff command ".br" (without the quotes). One caveat: I've not used the mdoc macros, but what I suggest is generally what you would do.

You might also look at the ".Bd/Ed" command pair. It looks to be similar to the ".DS/.DE" pair in -ms. Displays do not need separate ".br" commands added -- line splits follow carriage returns (unlike most of troff, which reads characters without regard to line breaks).
