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
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.
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.
