The Ladies of Horror
Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

001_Jan_LOHWhen You Close Your Eyes
by Ela Lourenco

I am the shadow
I am the night
I am the thing that lurks in the darkness
The creature who hides in your closet
Under your bed
I am all your nightmares woven into one
The faceless one
The one you ignore in the light of day
The one invisible in the warmth of the sun.
Ignore me, turn your back on me
Pretend not to see me all you want
Yet here I will remain
Always with you
Forever imprinted in you
I am all that you fear and hate
And yet I am you: your inner shadow self.
