    so loud and I'm mean don't get me wrong, I love the sound of birds etc but when you go for a late walk at 10-11pm at night everything is so still and silent and peaceful and you start to notice things around you and sometimes I don't feel alone but in a good way, and no body is...

    I like the night time over day

    because it is quiet. It gives me time to think and relax more.

    Even As A Child I Preferred Night Over Day.

    I use to dream of being rich and owning a jet plane, so I could out run the coming morning. Just a silly child's dream. However since my heart surgery 4x bypass, I find myself lonely and seeking peace in the night again. About a month ago I walked in to my heart Doc's office...

    There's something about the peace

    and serenity night brings, it's just so much better than day. I feel much more at home in the cool night than the hot day.

    "Don't go to sleep the same day you woke up." are words I LIVED by in college. And still, a few years later I'm doing good lol. I don't think I go to sleep very often before midnight and I love being up. It's just so pretty at night, especially when there is no noise pollution...

    Calling Of The Dark

    The stillness of the night air The stars, bright in the sky The coolness of the wind against my skin Soft noises in the distance as the silence of the night is broken. A group of voices, the sound of revelry abundant to hear The night is calling to them, as it calls to us The...

    Don't know why many fear the dark.

    When I am in my room in complete darkness and can't even see my silhouette, I feel like I actually am part of the world, I am the dark, the world is the dark, the world is my body. My words become omnipresent... Border lines are no more, there is nothing that suggests I am in...

    It Sure Is True

    So what? It doesn't hurt anybody. I like to get up at midnight, watch TV, stay up til 6:30 A.M, before the sun rises. Shut the TV off, go to bed, and wake up at midnight. Like when my fall break ends, i'll have to get up at 7:00, shower in cold water (hot water doesn't work...

    Honestly I can get a bit paranoid during the day

    but at night I feel at peace. Or at least more at ease than I do during the day. Most of the time I wish the sun didn't have to ever come up.

    I prefer darkness because my eyes are light,

    and they seem to be very sensitive in sunlight. I love the sun, but it hurts on bright days. Even with sunglasses I can have trouble, so nighttime is when I see rather well, considering. The night sky is the most beautiful thing in this universe, in my 'eyes'.

    than the day because. well I don't know what it is. but when I'm outside (or inside) there's just something that clicks. its like I feel more powerful in the dark, it's like something just happens and I just don't care about what's right or wrong any more. I'll just do what I...

    Night time is when creativity wakes up.

    Your mind wanders off to the most unimaginable things your thoughts lead to. It's the time where dreams are created to the sweetest detail. And it's the time where we get to not deal with the world for just a little while, leaving us with ourselves and our thoughts.

    Night is just so chill.

    ..the stars above shining down, the moon influencing the dogs. Everything is just so quiet, except for the occasional chirp of a cricket or the bark of a dog...the wind softly howling in the silence. At day people are awake and I don't like people so I stay locked up in my room...
