first sight

electricity enters through the tip of my middle finger
slowing perceptibly near the inside of my wrist
tracing back outward along eager skin
creating static on soft hair to touch my elbow
rising still, the current scintillates, ever so sure
winding gently up across my shoulder
to touch lightly, purposefully the base of my neck
it is as if a kiss has shivered upward along a single path
that wreaks havoc on my entire body

it is such a private moment that it stretches on
causing my breath to catch and release in slow shudders

you smiled and the world responded with such a physical force,
i could not have escaped. allowing for choice, i would not have wanted to.
