Theme of Absence

I'm looking for speculative flash fiction. I'm not too picky on the style of the story, as long as it includes elements of horror, science fiction, or fantasy. Spine-tingling ghost stories are just as welcome as robots and spaceships. Mixing up the genres is welcome and encouraged.
