    I just like to be in the dark. I like dark clothing, I like dark music, I like dark hair but apparently it does not look good on me. I guess I like the feeling of being invisible.

    Darkness-secrets Undiscovered

    I Love Darkness

    Darkness. I adore darkness. I feel like I am one with it. When I am weary, drained of life, and sighing in exhaustion, darkness envelops me as a strong, soothing, faithful lover would. I succumb to it, to the bliss and peace of mind it brings to me. To the silence. In it's...

    Pain And Death

    For the most part the survival instinct promotes to a comfortable existence. Keeping safe and warm and that sort of thing. But there is pain, and enduring pain is an aspect of life for some. All roads lead to destruction after all. And to survive is to endure. True darkness...

    At Peace Without the Light.

    I have always felt a strange comfort from the dark.  I feel the biggest monsters hide in the light and are afraid to join in the darkness.  The creatures of the darkness have always seemed more interesting to me.

    It's My Friend

    To me darkness represents power, rebirth, and mystery. When I'm in the dark, I'm able to focus on myself and my needs. Some of my best ideas have come out of sitting in the dark and thinking.

    The Beauty of Darkness

    I find a great deal of beauty in dark things.  Some would say that it's morbid...maybe.  I've been this way since childhood, but now, instead of suppressing it, I embrace it.  We are not all created from the bright cloth of sunlight, some of us are children of gray...

    Safety Blanket

    I have always preferred darkness. Mom says that even as a baby I preferred being awake at night. I even see better in the darkness. Light hurts my eyes. I've never felt like the darkness was threatening. To me it feels soft, and comfortable. I need darkness to envelope me, to...

    Strange But Beautiful Thing

    Darkness seems pretty simple (not very much light), but it is much more than that. It can evoke a whole range of feelings, but it is subtle. It can make everything seem magical and surreal. It brings your imagination to life (which can either be pleasant or scary, or possibly...

    Wrapped Up In Darkness

    In the dark, everything looks different and sounds different.  Maybe I like darkenss so much because there is less visual stimulus so I can focus my thoughts better.  I know I feel more secure in the darkness, like it's wrapping me up in a blanket, holding me, consoling...

    I Love The Dark

    I guess as a kid I didn't like it too much. I used to hide under the covers or think the boogie monster was in the closet or under my bed. But now, as an adult, I love it! I can walk around all day and see in the dark without a problem. I would not turn on the lights ever. I...

    A Quiet Comfortable Place

    I wasn't wild about the dark initially until I got into working nightshifts. Something about the sun having departed the sky brings out the hidden sides of humanity. As though everything you spent a lifetime suppressing, every wicked or outright sinful desire comes to the surface...

    Comfort In The Arms Of Darkness

    I enjoy going outside at night

    and away from the lights of my home, and enter the shadows. The dark, the night, it is like a shroud that conceals me from the world. In those moments, those moments within the dark, I feel safe. I feel limitless, unhampered, free. Somehow, the light just doesn't do it for me.

    Relaxing At Church

    The Dark Is Calming If You Accept It.

    I don't think darkness is always a bad thing. There's something relaxing just sitting in a pitch black night that's cool. I also like when there's a full moon and everything has that glow that no light can ever imitate. I guess I also have a love of gothic things to. I think the...

    I Welcome The Darkness

    I love the dark. I find it comforting and peaceful. Mysteriousness and power reign the dark where no light will ever reach. The pureness of a cool, crisp dark night are inviting and enticing to me. Sexy and seductive is the dark where temptation and adventure await.
