Your touch borrows magic from an ally. Upon casting this spell, when you touch your target, choose a spell of 5th level or lower with a range of touch you believe they know and can cast. If the target does know and can cast that spell (other than through the use of a magic item), you immediately gain the benefit of that spell as though they had cast it and targeted you, including any class features, feats, etc., the target has that modify the spell. This includes metamagic feats only if the spell was memorized with the metamagic feat applied (in the case of casters that memorize spells) and the spell is still 5th level or lower after the metamagic feat has been applied. Your target loses the spell as though she had cast it. If you siphon a cure spell from a class that can spontaneously convert memorized spells, like a cleric/oracle, she chooses which memorized spell to lose. If the target does not know or cannot cast the spell you choose, siphoning touch has no effect.
