No One Here

There is no one here
to abate this suffering
that seems to permeate
the air these days
and no matter how we pray
most deities seem unconcerned

until one angel enters in
and dares to make amends
for all the pain
that menaces e'en as it draws
attention to the senses we enhance
with such appeal we cannot seem
to flee it's great desire

for a fire burns so deep inside
that even ice seems tamed
by this heat that melts and melds
all love back into significance
no matter what society
or any unknown deity might say

yet still
there's no one here
right now, within reality
to help me make
these dreams of love
come true . . .
