I Feel More Comfortable At Night

    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...

    Sweet Darkness

    Do you know how much I love you?:). Your always ther when nobody els is. You always comfort me when nobody els does. Your always silent when nobody els is. You never intend or want to hurt me, yet you wrap yourself around me. You always change, but are always the same. Your...

    Wrap Me In Ure Arms.

    Hi I love the night, laying in bed when u cant see ure hands in front of u, hearing the frogs and the crickets. If ure outside  staring into the black emptiness, the starz dazzling with their display of glory. The big secret, the unknown out there, winking at u. The night is...

    Silence

    I love the silence. No one annoying me. No loud tv's blasted. I could just think. Think about things that happened or things I want to happen. I could draw with out anyone touching my art stuff. I could walk around the house. If i am feel like taking risks I might steal cookies...

    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...

    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 Is My Playground And Refuge

    Such fun and wonder. There’s so much to learn, so much to do, so much to discover! A crystal-blue cry here, a drop of blood-red there, a blanket of shaded-navy up in the sky, emerald-green down on the ground, magnesium bright specks glittering in the far off distance. 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.

    It kind of stinks since I just figured out

    that my mood is drastically better if I sleep with the darkness and spend a good amount of time in daylight. The biggest reason I don't like it is that I feel a lot more productive writing at night and during the daytime, I will waste time even when focusing on my work.

    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...

    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...

    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

    The Night Is A Blanket

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
