    It's a New Thing

    I used to hate the dark, I used to absolutely fear it. And, in some ways, I still do. That first moment when the lights go out send this horrible thrill through my body, and I want to rush around and turn on every light I can, because I know that some monster must be waiting to...

    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...

    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.

    In the dark, truths are concealed.

    That means if you can't see the hated truths, you'll feel better. The sad thing is, if your mind's eye is sharp, you will still see those hated truths. Still, seeing truths with just the mind's eye is better than seeing them with your real eyes, because if you can see...

    In Most All Things

    I've said in other posts that I'm a Dark Pagan. I first came to Paganism through Wicca.. but found it too much invested in Light and Happiness for my comfort. It seemed to me that there was too much emphasis on it, and that night and the destructive side of nature had been pushed...

    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.

    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...

    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

    A few weeks ago, we had a full moon. Instead of ivory it was the orangeish color it is sometimes. The thing about is that it was so close to us. I was in the car with my family when I saw it in the sky and got so excited every time I saw it saying "Look. Look there it is again...

    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

    They say the light us good

    but darkness can not only keep u safe by hiding u, but over exposure to light can blind u. At least in darkness your eyes adjust. So when ur dying, dont go into the light. The light will fry your skin

    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.

    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.
