It's her he sees
within his every dream
so consistently
it makes him want to scream
but she's not there

He reaches out to empty air
then sinks back down
with tightly lidded eyes
and focuses intently
on the form of one who seems
to be the ghostly image in his dream
but she's not there

Still he ravishes the form
of his imaginings
and she awakens in the night
just as she screams
at the faceless form
that enters in
forcefully, without an invitation

while in reality she runs away
as far away as she can be
from his obsession
