yes it is possible,

consider two charges particles of opposite sign are  placed at some distance....

if they are released then then their potential energy continiously decreases and kinetic energy increases...this all happens due to their mutual electroststic attraction and not by any external force....

similar example can be taken for gravitational force...

if two protons are placed at a small seperation the due to force of repulsion they would accelerate in opposite directions thus their kinetic energy increases
