The ID

I closed my eyes and held my breath for just a moment and then exhaled slowly to steady my nerves before turning the corner.  A hideous death would be upon me whether I stayed hidden or faced it head on, for it could smell the fear in me and would feed off of it until I withered and died.

Good afternoon, Michele

In a short piece you had the reader experience different emotions with courage at the end.

Well done.

Take care and stay safe,


Karen Holt


Hi Michelle, this is strong and powerful and full of dark emotion. I thought of the Id – ego and super ego – and in that we are our own worst enemy, and feed things that destroy us, I think it works on that level too. Self destruction can be just as compelling ?
I like that this works on several levels, it made me think, and that is great. Karen
