Electric Love

You fiercely ignite my synaptic core,

making my heart stammer wild, erratic

when your fingers dance about and explore

my skin, the friction creating static.


Bioelectric impulses rush from

head to fingers to toes, when your lips press

tight against mine, forcing me to become

shaky, a quivering love possessed mess.


Our bodies entwine, a toe curling dance

of transmissions from brain to nerves to heart.

Time slows down, exposing love’s wide expanse,

the landscape held us captive from the start.


Unquestionable, the passion we share,

extraordinary, beautiful, and rare.

A sonnet dedicated to my husband, Dan
