Nightmare: Master, am I hideous?

A delight, you never were!
An affright, you have been!
A purpose, you are not!
An incubus, you will eternally be!

To nightmare I offer this thanks,
     when needing something like hideous
When writing poetry and drawing blanks,
     I often settle using ferocious

I have been seaching ever more,
     hoping again to sing your praise.
For words, I very much adore,
     lacking me in several ways.

May I lend a pulse, furnished so people might see
Fully didactic notations, vaguely informing, and oh now revealed free?
Dismay or nausea seem all too apparent. But is ghastly?
Repulsion, alarm? - or distaste, loathing? Damn! I neglected ghostly!
I reason nightmare and therefore frightful, but broadly ought I
- paste concepts so - allusions fetched with equations spry?
