When I was very young, my cousins had a silhouette of their mother hanging in their mother's room. When I would visit them, that picture would scare me, because I always felt something strange about it. I still do to this day. =O I try to write it as if it were a child was speaking to you.

Can you see her?
She’s staring at me
But she has no face
Her blank expression
Terrifies me
Why is she looking at me?
I thought she was pretty
But she looks so mean
She wants to hurt me
“Leave my house! Leave my house!”
“No!”
My eyes are betraying me
Wet, cold fear forms
And falls down from my face
My aunt comes
“Mijo, what’s wrong?”
I point to the figure
“She scares me!”
I yell.
“Oh, mijo, don’t worry,”
She says

“It’s just my silhouette.”
