The skeleton in the “closet”
When i was a child i had a recurring dream. I would be in the basement of my childhood home and as I was starting to climb back up the staircase a skeleton would grab at my ankle to hold me back. I would shake my leg to get him off, i would try to scream, then i would wake up. i’ve often wondered if the skeleton could have represented someone i knew,someone very close to me, who would trap me in that basement.
