    I Think It's Because

    'Dark' things aren't overrated like sunshine and rainbows and all that. They're seen as innocent and accessible to everyone. The dark things, moonlight, blood, death. Are all as beautiful - there's just mystery to them. Which I thinks attracts us - as we're curious by nature.

    Death and the Darker Side

    At various time in my life the darker side has been appealing to me.  A little over a year ago, my grandmother, who was like a mother, died, and didn't think I grieved much, but became morbidly attracted to vampirism and my magick took on a dark tone.  When I finally...

    Dark Side

    "If I showed you my dark side would you still love me?"  (Pink Floyd) There is a dark side to everyone.........I believe.  The thoughts that creep into our heads that we would never share with anyone.  Sometimes even suprising ourselves at where our...

    Sickeningly Captivating

    there is a deep and unsettling beauty in the macabre and the repulsive, and its something that everyone is drawn too. we all have a fascination with death, and pain, sadness, anger and even insanity has a subtle beauty to it. its because the repulsive is real  snapshots of...

    Darker the Better

        I love the darker side of life. I'm not sure way I guess it's just closer to the truth. The lighter side is ok for kids they don't need to see how jacked up humanity is.

    Love That Pic By the Way

    I like dark things, I like the night and blood and movies like Saw or Natural Born Killers all the way to batman begins or any tim burton movie. I'm not goth, I don't dress the part and no one calls me it. I'm a vampire though, and I have a hellish past of suffering. I know...

    I like darker movies, about darker topics, like Underworld or Saw or a psychological film about someone in a dark place like, hmmm, I don't know... Girl, Interrupted or Stay. I love seeing someone delve into their dark side and bring it out to the surface. Oh I've thought of...

    I've always been drawn to things more dark or macabre. I don't know what it is..whether it be movies, songs, clothes, philosophies...I wouldn't go so far as to call myself Goth, but I definitely do share a lot of the same traits.

    it was at the end if the bowl so I poked it with my finger to see how much was left, and I burnt my finger bad, I smelt the burnt flesh... So you know when you smell something you taste it too because the two senses are linked? I think I just tasted human flesh particles. It's...

    Have you ever felt like.

    .. Your darkness, your attraction to it...Maybe there's nothing wrong with you, maybe you're born as a disciple of dark? I mean... Anyone will agree, the universe is about balance, light and dark, and both are necessary. What if we children of the dark are merely meant to be...

    Would It Be Goth?

    I have always been called goth because I like the darker stuff. I love skulls and blood and gore. I love dark colors, clothes, you name it. I love winter, some people think that dark because everything is asleep or dead. If I wasn't called goth I was called weird. Is it weird...

    Not Necesarily Gothic...

    I have my appreciation for Tim Burton, of Johnny The Homicidal Maniac, all sorts of things relating to horror and the macabre. That has nothing to do with what I have to say for the rest of this story. Next time you see a homeless person, really look at them. Or a wild boar...

    There isn't a light at the end of my tunnel. It's only the darkness. Follow it and meet me there. Lust for the pleasure that only the darker side of things can give you. Don't let me wait too long, for I am fickle.

    A Tantalizing Aspect

    I find myself so attracted to some of the negative aspects of life because they tend to be the parts that people leave out. I have long ago realized that it's just easier for most people to paint the sky blue then wonder what different hues it could possibly be shaded with. So...

    I don't know why I love all things dark

    and Gothic, but I always have. It has always come naturally to me, even as a small child. I was wearing all black and contemplating deep, brooding things about our world by the 5th grade. I'm not Goth, I'm not "emo", or punk or whatever the **** people wanna call me. I simply...

    It Holds The Truth

    Life is a beautiful lie. With all its beauties and dreams. In my case, its the American dream. But that dream has died out long ago. I can only imagine how many of these dreams have died out with the destruction of humanity and the corruption of the government. Our morals have...

    Strange But True.

    It's becoming more prevalent over the years. I love looking at gross pictures and watching horror flicks. I don't mind reading about the occult. I like skulls (not real ones, but the images of them), blood, and things normally considered too scary to look into. I freak myself...
