I used to be "Black Leaves", many yrs ago. It had to do with a certain memory. One where after being abused I looked up and saw the, Black Leaves of the trees over the moon at night. It was one of the first memories that came back to me after 25 yrs of repressing them.
I changed my name to "Blacken" because I was tried of explaining "Black Leaves".
I found that Blacken fit me better anyways.
I feel it represents the dark side of my existence that I can vent & share here.
It also represents the old life that I once lived, a burned, ashen, blacken, and terribly painfull one, for me.
Its a reminder of what was, how very far I have come.
