Shocking

I saw you bare
With dragging feet deliberate
Building up a charge inside your body
Preparing to unleash
Sparks from your fingertips
Onto, into me
Wherever I might allow
So I ran with fear and laughter
But briefly
Because I realized too late
You were gaining anyway
With that charge in your palms
Only intensified by each step
Stopping, my only option
I turned
I could have touched you first
But I closed my eyes instead
Preparing myself
Giggling and barely
Breathing
Static
Crackling
Electricity

Because last night I played with static electricity,
was shocked, and was inspired by it.
