    Why Be Scared Of The Dark?

    Ever since I was little, I've loved the dark.  I never slept with a night-light, never thought there were monsters under my bed.  I love walking around outside at night, while the rest of the world is asleep.  It's the one time that you can find peace in the world...

    The Night Is A Blanket

    I love going out at night and seeing people and seeing the world. The night moves slowly and let's one experience so much more in the time. Being out in nature at night is a special experience. Whether it is just meeting a tree or backpacking through the night, it makes for a...

    What Happens At Night

    The night air fills me with a sort of peace, and a weird but good feeling. I can't describe it. Feels like the night BELONGS to me. Literally. When the sun goes down, I feel completely safe outside, much safer then I do during the day. When I look up at the moon, it's light...

    It's Peaceful

    There are many reasons for my liking. Night are quiet, silent. I love watching stars. Love the cold breeze. I sit on a chair and completely go in a relax state. While there is other side of night also. My brain activity increase at night. During my student days most of my...

    Nocturnal

    I've been more 'at home' at night most of my life. I was a bartender in my twenties and I think that set my internal clock. I seem to become more alert at dusk. Night is comforting; the darkness seems close like a blanket and yet the sky opens up to reveal what the day has...

    Vampire

    Sometimes I think I might be a vampire! I love the night and sitting outside in the dark. Becoming part of the night that no one can see. It feel comfortable to me. It feels like home. Sometimes I feel safer in the dark night than in broad daylight. Does that make me the...

    I'm Afraid Of The Dark But I Love The Night

    I believe in ghosts so I am terrified of the dark, but I love the night because I feel so alive, every morbid feeling I have becomes so clear and vivid and I wish it would be night outside all the time...because its the only moment when I feel actually safe within myself.

    Speaking With The Stars

    There is something serene in watching as the city around me goes to sleep. The intense light of the sun fading into a perfect blue light, right before the darkness of night settles in, as if blue skies are slowly being covered in a blanket of stars. I lack a belief in gods and...

    Not A Vampire, Just A Night Girl

    I am. I love the night and being outside at night. Its just something about being able to go outside in the dark and not be seen. To be a shadow for a moment in time and not a person. The dark is not always a scary bad thing, sometimes it is safety and peace. A retreat from...

    Night's Charm

    I was wondering sometimes how different could I be if people could be sleeping when the sun's up and living at night but it sure would be ridiculous, right? I was stupid to even think about it. If the night was just like day, it wouldn't be anything special. Too obvious for me to...

    Dangerous Mornings

    I feel so vulnerable in the morning. If it is before 10am, my social anxiety kicks in and I dont want to go out.. I have always been a night owl. I feel calm and like everything has calmed outside. It is quiet and I feel like I have it all to myself.

    I Am A Creature Of The Night

    The night is less demanding, less intense.  Daytime is too manic, too stimulating.  It seems that the only purpose it serves sometimes is to wind us up to the breaking point such that nighttime, our time of rest, is rendered useless.

    The Night

    It calls to me gently softly wraping me up in its darkness hiding me from the world so that I may pounce on any who would dare hunt me or to lay in the grass and watch the stars or to curl up in a dark room and feel comfy
