nuclear fallout

 

it’s good to create

energy in a marriage

a bit of spark adds

excitement to any

couple’s relationship

but negative energy

will backfire on itself;

wound like   [bam]

agitated boomerang

or spring   [zing]

like wristwatch too

tightly wound, no

longer

synchronized

in time

 

together.

    So real. Perspective. Provocative. Respective. Resonates.
