    I Have a Gothic Heart

     I don't know since when I started to feel less sunshine in my heart.  My world is so grey. Even in my dream I can only see grey sky.

    I Love It

    I'm a very dark person at heart really. I can get bubbly and stupid and giggly at times, but I've always really hated those typical university chicks that are like 90 pounds and think they're fat with gorgeous features and who sit on the elliptical machine at the gym for...

    In high school many years ago I was gothic.

    When i was 20 I got a real job. Now I look like a boring librarian or teacher. But on the inside... well that never changed.

    Gothic Under Strict Religious Surveillance

    I've always been enthralled by the dark forces around us. Vampires, werewolves, things that go bump in the night, dark poetry and prose many elements of the gothic scene have been awe inspiring for me. Although, my family who are devote Christians are very cynical in their...

    I usually dress like a goth

    but I am still Christian. I think it's a cute style. My best friend is a goth as well and a Christian. But my ex hated it so we broke up. #God4Life##ImHappy

    The Gothic Community

    The Gothic Community expresses the most deepest thoughts of the most inner of worlds. Our art is worshipped, and our fashion is desired. Just look at the Emos, they try to become like (and there is very little the same between them) us. Although they can never have what we got...

    I've Already Been A Goth

    I think it's been now 2 years ago when it dawned on me that I have been Goth on the inside since I was in my teens. All the interest with anything dark and mysterious. I secretly loved dark music such as industrial and symphonic metal. I've been interested in the paranormal since...

    Gothic On The Inside

    I love everything Gothic! The clothes, the music, the hair, the makeup, the everything! Though I rarely ever dress it... I am Gothic on the inside.

    Yes, Tres Gothique

    I'm not about vampires and stuff but the very delicate dark aesthetics. Lush materials, lace, velvet, even leather. I am way beyond my teenage years and still have a tendency to be drawn to the subculture. I feel natural wearing black, it's my second skin.

    I've always liked the gothic stuff. I liked the dark stuff and the beauty in the dark. For some reason, I could relate to it. I tried to change myself but I keep finding myself going back into the subculture. Its just a great way for me to express who I am. I still really...

    And the Outside Too!!

    I was in love with a goth guy, and I didn't know it. I got on the internet to ponder why he does as he does, I discovered what goth was, and discovered I was ALREADY goth inside, and then after that dressed it. The end!
