Through The Wall

I hear you in the next room;
Listening through the wall
As you write a new song.
The words aren’t there yet,
Just vowel sounds and humming,
But the melody forms
Beneath your fingertips,
Between your lips.
A clear pathway in your mind
Of how this song will sound
But you’re tentative:
Experimenting with different sounds
Until the right one
Reveals itself.
Like the sun emerging
From behind a cloud,
You find it.
I hear it all through the wall.
