I was younger, about 6 or 7. I am not sure exactly how old I was but I just moved to South Dakota months before my incident. I would have been in 1st grade but it happened during the summer.
Anyways, I woke up in the middle of the night/ I have no clue what time it really was because I did not have a clock in my room, but I looked around my room and as I looked towards the right of my bed (against the wall) I saw a shadow head of a man on the wall, the head faced sideways. It looked like he had a beard and but not a long one and he looked like he also had hair that would have been maybe 2 inches long. I did not freak out a whole lot but I did try to rearrange my covers because I thought they were the cause, but they weren't.
So I thought of this weird, creepy, glass mannequin-like head that my older sister put in my room. I thought that was the cause but truthfully it was nowhere near the light coming into my room from the window about 10 feet left of my bed. So I got up took the head down from the shelf but the head stayed. So I ran back into bed, and stared out the window to see if I would see anyone, nothing.
I then felt scared so I hid underneath my blanket for a little bit. I peeked my head out but it was still there, it never moved from the way it was looking. I then started freaking out and moving my blankets but it stayed still.
Long story short, it disappeared as my knees were up and as I moved them down the head moved with the shadow of my legs and disappeared. I have never seen it since.
I have always had a fear of the dark and right now I am a Junior in high school. I still fear the dark. I have had little experience with ghosts but I can swear that the shadow head actually happened to me. It is the earliest experience I have with ghosts and I have had another experience and I never stopped believing that what I saw was real.
