Convergence

When I am millimetres from your skin

after miles of tedious geography in between;

When parting is mere minutes away

but merging only seconds;

When I am,at last, first on your list;

When I am hard,ready to take and slake

but also to be made hungry again;

When life pauses,fleetingly,

at the door of our private room;

(When coming means going

but theres no stopping coming);

Then I am

the unearthed electricity

of breaking weather.
