A Murder

Story written circa 1964

I have not been sleeping well lately but this is not what I am getting at exactly. It is when I seem to go to sleep that it happens. I say "seem to go to sleep" because it is just that. More and more of late I appear to be alseep, I sense I am asleep and yet in my dream I dream of my room, I dream that I am sleeping and everything is just where I left it when I went to bed...
