    How to use "Pitch-dark" in context?

    The sky is a deep, pitch-black abyss, punctuated only by the small, manicured lights of the city below. Even in broad daylight, the darkness feels oppressive. Some refer to the atmosphere of darkness as "pitch-dark". In fact, there is a psychological term for that feeling- a kind of anxiety or dread that comes from an overwhelming sense of isolation. In darkness, we are vulnerable. The sounds of the city are nonexistent and we can't see a thing. The air feels closed in, as if something or someone is watching us.
