Hide your subject
Sometimes the less you show in a photo, the more meaning you can tease out of it. Intentionally hiding something is a provocative move that dares the viewer to look harder for the purpose of the image. It lets you explore themes in your images, rather than specifics. Perhaps you could hide the face, or obscure your subject behind something, or show a person in silhouette, or with their back turned, or maybe just their shadow.
