    I Love the Dark

    I always wait until I absolutely have to to turn the lights on in the morning. I get up before the sun comes up to go to work, so it's always dark when I get dressed. I have my dresser drawers organized so that I always know whatever I pull out is work appropriate. I also always...

    I Am Not Afraid Of The Dark..

    I am not afraid of the dark, but I am terrified of nighttime. When it gets dark outside, and it's late at night and everyone else goes to sleep, I get really paranoid. I am afraid that I will die or something terrible will happen to me at night. During the day, I am fine. But as...

    I am not afraid of the dark. I have walked unlit highways, streets, etc. I am terrified of the darkness within.

    I understand every painful thing to ever happen

    to me. I have made resolve and found it to hold no catharsis or understanding or even slight release to my constant lingering sometimes extremely sharp pain. I see things. Dual realities, one were I see someone and another were I'm stabbing them. My history is littered painful...

    I am never scared when I go to bed.

    I mean, why would someone be killed in their sleep? Just go somewhere safer! Duh.

    Don't Like It

    I don't like it, but am not afraid of it. I prefer the sun and light, so am not overly fond of the dark. My brother's terrified of it, and always has been. Every night I go upstairs and his light is still on. I've no idea whether he'll ever get over his fear but nodbody's...

    Not One Bit.

    As a matter of fact if I have to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom or anything I don't even bother to turn the lights on. Why should I? I know where everything is, don't need to waste the electricity to see it.

    That Isn't Quite True. . .

    Sometimes I am, sometimes I'm not. It just depends on the time. After I watch a horror movie, for example, I'm afraid of the dark. XD But in general, just during a regular night, I can walk around a dark house, lay on top of the covers in a dark room, etc-- without worrying. I...

    Cats' Eyes

    It's seldom truly lightless; there almost always is a thread of light, and I have eyes like a cat. So why should I be afraid?  I can always see well enough to navigate.

    I Never Have Been..

    I was never scared of the dark. Not even when I was little. Monsters under the bed never scared me. I think the only thing I was scared of in the dark was the possibility of stepping on a lego or something that I couldn't see. My friends always thought (and still think) I am...

    The Dark Is My Friend

    It's funny, cause when I was a kid, I was really afraid of the dark, I was afraid of death, and the monster under the bed. Now I've made my peace with death as best I can, and I kicked that monster's *** for five years running, coming home drunk or high as a teenager, and he...

    I Used To Be Afraid Of The Dark. But Not Anymore.

    I used to be afraid of the dark. But not anymore. I find solace in the dark at times. Darkness is not to be feared if it is understood, revered, or even loved. Understanding enlightens, and en-light-enment sheds light Making the darkness void, illuminating the night. Like the...

    Darkness thrills me. It is where

    that which cannot stand the light of day exists. Danger, perhaps, excitement, naturally. Wrap me in your arms and take me away with you.

    I mean unless you're talking about a place with dangerous people or animals, that's a different story! But like the boogieman and stuff, I don't get scared of that.

    I do keep it hidden, because not everyone gets my sense of humor, or how I entertain dark thoughts towards others almost unconciously.
