Darkness, as polar to brightness, is understood to be an absence of visible light. It is also the appearance of black in a colored space. Humans are unable to distinguish color when either light or darkness predominate. In the absence of light, perception is achromatic and ultimately, black. The emotional response to darkness has metaphorical connotations in many cultures.

Examples of darkness in a Sentence
Proverbs in conversation are torches in darkness.
I do believe the tide is turning, it has very much to do with the fact that people are coming out of the darkness, speaking about their experiences and saying' We're just trying to get on with our lives. Can we ?'.
When you admire the light, remember to give the darkness its due as well, because without it, the beauty of the light will disappear!
People who live in the world of light are often envied by people from the world of darkness. Those jealous people always try every manipulation to drag the wonderful people of the world of light into their dark depressing world. Never allow yourself to be pulled down and mucked up into their mucky world of darkness and ignorance. Continue your journey on your pre-planned path illuminated with the shining bright light of Knowledge and Truth. A Viaxe Continua!
We were just watching the video back and saw the thing come out of the darkness.
