    Like the Johnny Cash song "Man In Black" thats

    how I feel also. I have a very somber tone, for the poor and beaten down, for those who never read or listen to the words that Jesus said. For the sick and loney old, for the thousands of men and women for service who are dismemberd and have died. For all those who I may have...

    I just think I look best in black

    since my hair color is always changing. If I wear any other color it tends to just not look as good.

    I Don't Even Realize

    I own a lot of black clothes, because black looks good on me. I have pale skin and black really makes it pretty. So because I own a lot of black I tend to wear a lot of black and I don't even realize it sometimes. But I look good in it. So, who cares?

    It is my envelope of night,

    I wear it to absorb a little of your heat and colour as you pass, so that I never forget you, and I wear it so that I don't have to explain myself to you in words, with blatant obviousness, so that you don't forget me. I feel at home in the shadows, when there are crowds, but in...

    Some Say It's Wrong

    Ever since I was small (around 10), I wanted to wear black - but mom only allowed it after I was 15. It's my favorite color, and the only one I feel comfortable with. No, really. Tried wearing purple, or blue, or grey, for casual clothes - but it just makes me really really...
