Heedless

Lightning can strike twice.
How else does one explain
Deliberately walking into
Danger,
Just to feel the charge increase?
Every nerve reacts, participates in
Concert.
Despite conscious awareness still
Surprised.
Stunned by the shock.
Disoriented and confused,
Blink and smile, pleased to
Breathe.
Then feel the wires in my body
Conduct the power in your
Touch
To every last extremity, and
Tingle.
Feel the atoms race, stopping
To turn about and go again.
Wild, empowered movements
Defy understanding just because
They can.
A giga-watt of passion, a lifetime of
Emotion passes instantly through
Me.
Channeled, it changes into something 
Pure.
Knowing this was dangerous,
Knowing there'd be pain, yet still
Worth the risk
To retrieve and go beyond.
So stride ahead aware,
Wanting to 
Follow the heart.
