Electrical Currents

“For a moment, I’d like to get lost in you.
I want to awaken that electricity between us.”

It’s in the heat of the moment, you see. Like time stands still until it’s only you and me and the crackling of electricity between us. The way our senses come alive under the cover of darkness and we are left with the sounds of the air moving in and out of our lungs. Those are the moments I remember. Those are the moments I crave. But how can we find them again after so much time? How can we find them after so much change? If only for a moment, I’d like to get lost with you again. To once again experience what it means to be free of inhibitions. To realize that what we shared isn’t gone, but merely dormant.

I want to awaken
that electrical current
between us.
