Well, Wikipedia says that it is. :)
In the case of light itself (photons impinging on a surface), the solution is obvious. Take away the light, and you have the absence of light, or darkness.
However, I assume that you are not looking for the trivial solution, and are instead referring to darkness metaphorically, as in the presence of evil or depression. In this context, it is again true that the presence of light eliminates the darkness.

There is a saying: behind every dark cloud, there is silver lining. So where there is darkness, there is light. The two always goes together as a whole. Light is of darkness, as darkness is of light.
Evil or Satan is referred to as darkness, or the dark side of things. People with mental illness, are looked upon as having evil forces upon them. There is good and evil in the world, in the same token, as there is light, and darkness in the world.
