    I do not know why I do.

    I like red. But majority of my clothes are black. Each time I enter a clothing store - I pick a lot of outfits. And only later I realize that I have chosen mostly black ones. It's weird.

    I don't do this in greif

    or as a result of sadness. It confusses me how wearing black is often associated with sadness. I I saw a quote on tumblr that said "Black is not sad. Bright colors are what depresses me. They are so empty. Black is poetic".

    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...

    Most of my shirts are black.

    It goes with everything and most are band t-shirts so that explains alot. I don't enjoy colorful clothes because it reminds me of happier feelings I lack and everyone else does.

    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...

    90% of my closet is black

    because I think it very chic and gives you sophistication and elegance. It's understated beauty and that's the best type.

    It's one of my favorite colors,

    I can't help it. I love dark colors in general. Trying to brighten up some though to suit all this heat. My brother sister used to always call me, and still sometimes do, "goth" and "emo" for wearing so much black. They're pretty stupid tbh.

    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...
