Flames And Fireworks

We [Immediately] Send
an ‘X’ with a ‘Heart’
… whenever
there’s a Knife Attack
in Mainland Britain
… it’s Repetitive,
but [Also] Necessary…
Together we become
a [Complete] Circle
… apart, there’s worry.
Neither one of us
is ‘Passive’, ever…
match [Strike]
… now, that’s a First.
We’ve learnt to Ride
the [Giddying] Ark
of each other’s…
[Rapid] Mood Swings
… and Reload…
whilst, our Better Half
is still Furiously-Firing!
