    That's all I want to do right now.

    The past few days I have been at war with myself.....I haven't been keeping up with my mental health. I've just been so good, I forgot to do the upkeep of my mind and I was reminded why I must do it this week. Someone spoke to me and she spoke of the traumas she's endure and...

    I love being it extreme dark.

    I find it very relaxing. Your eyesight is nolonger needed so you just rely on touch and hearing. As long as you know your surroundings you are perfectly safe and ay ease. Very peaceful.

    Along The Edge Of The World.

    There's something very beautiful about the dark night sky. Walking past the lakefill I felt I was walking on the edge of the world - like the universe was just beyond those rocks in that inky blackness. I can almost smell the universe. And then I think, I AM in the universe, and...

    I like to feel my emotions overflow me like a

    tidal wave going towards the brittle sand.. Sitting in the dark, makes me feel safe. It's just something about the dark that makes me feel the sadness that I want to REALLY feel. I like to cry in the dark, and just think until I've felt all of the pain in my heart. Sitting in...

    I didn't see the daylight today.

    This doesn't make me antisocial. It's just a thing I like to do when I'm alone.

    I dont know why, but sitting in the dark alone

    seems to help. Maybe its because I can see myself, my mind can wander and I can escape from myself just for a little while. Perhaps its because I know that the darkness can hide me, so others cannot see me.

    Is it bad I'm extremely antisocial in person

    but online I can talk much freely? The dark is a great place to be. No one likes the dark so no one bothers me there. Xp

    University At Night

    Sometimes I study late at uni. When I have had enough and I'm waiting for a ride home, I like walking around in the dark. The campus has a whole other personality at night when hardly anyone is about, except for the moon. It's pleasant to sit on a bench in the cool dark and...
