The Ghosts of Midnight

She sleeps with the ghosts of midnight.

Most of them are her own, so she know their names and they don’t bother her.

But they are annoying.

She wakes in the dark valley of hope.

It seems to be getting darker, but at the same time the hope is getting brighter.

Just as well, because her hand-held torch has wobbly batteries so it flickers more often than it gleams.

She has a light on her mobile phone but her mobile phone is not smart; It has a built in camera but only a two photo capacity and the ‘torch’ function basically illuminates her hand.

In the dark it’s her feet that are the problems.

She needs some of those shoes with built in toe lights.

Do they exist?
