Missteps

With focused eyes
Thoughts dance feverishly
Recalling the steps
Was it left or right
Incessant counting ignored
Turn her around, hold her tight
A body touching yours
Our frames connected
Sweaty scents in my nose
Untamed hair in my face
Losing control
Gone is the balance
I ignored before I started
That it was going to be a challenge
There is nothing left to do
But face her
Look her in the eye
And say with a smile

Again?
