fifteen

we dance
you and i
one step forward
two steps back
you engage
i retreat
you stumble clumsily
i tromp on painfully with both feet...
going where no mom wants to be

somedays
we just have different beats.

but sometimes...
sweet sometimes...
we catch the same song
sometimes,
sweet sometimes,
i catch you humming along...
