Live wire

An exposed wire,
arching with current
determined to make a connection,
searching for the thing
that would ground the energy,
bare copper stripped of insulation,
of the protection it had once afforded.
The thin strands of its being
had been tightly wound,
braided together into a single path.
She had come and peeled away
that defense against loss,
exposed the core of energy
that was carried within.
Laid bare that which was hidden,
and watched as each thread,
each thin copper strand
was freed from the collective.
Freed so that sparks flew
from the current arcing,
energy flying from
the once solid metal mass
to the now frayed wires
and back.
That energy looking for a place
to find release,
find realization,
to be grounded.
