Lovesong

The rhythm set by a DJ
and a bass guitar echoes the time
as fingers dance across a laptop keys
a brief respite as the music ends
and a traffic alert bemoans delays
on the M4 again
adverts selling things nobody needs
and then his voice
sings the words I wish I could write
and all I can see is you
like a reflection on my computer screen
and I can’t write at all
all I can do is feel my love in a song
my heart reaching across the airwaves
