think about it like this:
How much stuff is in an empty hole? nothing.
Just like emptyness is the lack of stuff so too is darkness the lack of light.

heres another way to think of it:

Take a flashlight and flip the switch on and off continuously, the light comes out in pulses and travels, alternating with darkness like this:

==[|- - - - - -

The dark patches travel at the same speed as the pulses of light in between them

OR the light travels THROUGH the darkness because the darkness isn't some sort of matter, its just air particles that arent lit up, so the light enery just goes thru them, losing a little bit of them to the air resistance or whatever. the darkness doesnt move.
