In my dreams
you climb into my head.
It's a strange sensation.
There's a void that opens,
I can see it like a special effect
in a movie,
a clear and wavering eye,
and suddenly you are inside
and I have lost all control.
I feel your touch from within
but I cannot return it,
only revel in sensation.
My mind wants to do something,
to act,
but I can only react.
What should be frightening,
strangely isn't.
I am inside myself with you,
looking over your shoulder,
marveling at what you see
as I shatter like glass
on hearing high C.
