Unfulfilled

In a dream
Within a dream
Ghosts chase
Haunting faces
Those who barely
Touch them
Feel triumphant
For a while
Soon find more
Tantalising ones
To run after
Those thwarted
Sit down and weep
Conduct ritual sacrifices
Undertake rigorous vows
Say stone-melting prayers
Not knowing what is wanted
Is not what is wanted
For when the dream ends
There is no waking to.
