I love this. Kinda flows like a lullaby and it’s grand. I relate to this a little too much. I have a lot of trouble falling asleep but not quite as much when I go visit my mother. There’s nothing like the comfort of home.
There is something 'half world(ly)' about nighttime. Those who suffer with insomnia know this all too well. It is like everyone is sleeping peacefully, leaving you awake dealing with a warped reality - every inanimate object somehow lives, or at least knows your thought. I liked your rhyming stanzas. Your choice of words made the, otherwise unnerving scene, playful and fun.
Thank you Daniel for your lovely comments very much appreciated but slightly confusing.. Im sorry but it doesnt say "ghost aboard" it says "ghost abroad" which has a totally different meaning :) best wishes Milly x
