epigramme: call and response

summary: We must come together
we call
       no response
       
       no response

reach out a heart
       no response
 
       no response

don't these lines
in the fabric of the universe
                    around us
still carry messages
like they did
when we were 19?

O! to be a worshipper of true beauty
in a time of increasing destruction
in a world so scared
of it's own reflection
slashing it's own wrists
and bleeding all over
the words of our prophets and bards
that not even the dreamers
can stay connected - even seeing each other through the windows to the soul

we call
we call
we call
