she walks with confidence 

i thought existed only in movies

the wind carries her

when i stumble upon my own feet

she laughs with her gentle giggle 

and i try to laugh with her 

but i hear my own voice and stop

bands of eyes pass us 

i swear they've just seen color for the first time --

i don't let myself look away from the ground

did they even see me?

i wonder if i am even at her side

or if i am just the decayed gum i watch

stuck to the cement 

walked all over by her million dollar shoes
