I Love The Dark

    I hate how people always refer to light

    as good and dark as bad. I believe (you may consider me weird but) that when we are depressed, lonely, almost like we can't see anyone by our side because there is no one we can see, darkness is by our side. He is enveloping us though we maybe uncomfortable with his support...

    And yea though I stand alone in a Forrest of

    shadows I do not fear. For though my road has been long and weary I was born of darkness. My path has graced me with the chance to stand side by side with the sentinels of light, but it is in darkness that I thrive. It is here that I hunt, stalking those that would prey on the...

    Excellent Night Vision

    My eyes are really sensitive.  I may be absurdly nearsighted, but I also have really good night vision.  I can see just fine with almost no light.I like walking in the dark, knowing I can see find and navigate with confidence.  I like knowing I can see when/where many cannot.

    What Lurks

    I love the dark – that velvety embrace, being alone with myself and whatever it is that lurks there. I know its silly but, I've always been a little afraid of the dark. As I've gotten older, I find that fear still lingers, but, now as an enticement rather than a deterrent...

    Just Right

    I love turning off all the lights in my room, closing the windows (although this really only works at night -- light seeks through the curtains otherwise), putting on some extremely quiet music and lying down in bed with the covers pulled up to my chin. It's the only time I ever...

    I love the dark with all my heart.

    It fills me, makes me feel whole. When I'm in a dark place, I feel truly alive. I feel like I'm at home in the dark.

    I Can't Sleep When It's Still Dark

    I love the night, and I don't know why, I just feel more awake, and I only sleep when it's light outside. It gets annoying sometimes, but I don't mind.

    I enjoy going out in the dark of night.

    No flashlight is required. I let the night guide me. It does a pretty good job. My other senses perk up and inform me of my surroundings. My eyes adjust to look more for motion than they do in the light. I see different shades of gray and navigate around them. I feel comfortable...
