Being out and about in the busy streets, Getting social with strangers is really a huge leap For a person, such as I, who favored solitude, stillness - Living in a secluded existence. But then, this way of life is no longer viable. I have to spread my wings and widen my social circle. It's one of the ways for me to adapt and catch up to your level So that I'm ready when we are finally together. Albeit, staying here for only a few days, I know that I should make the most of it And discover what life, outside my sheltered life, has to offer.

Like a fearless eagle, I soar through the clouds Crossing new borders. I stepped into an uncharted soil, Walked the quaint streets where the locals mingle. Staying here was really an eye-opener; That people from all races Don't really differ despite the language barrier. Though it is our special day and we are not physically together But I thank you for all the experiences you have offered. I know that one of these days, We Will Finally Be Together.

You were like Mr. Rabbit Wearing your waistcoat and all. In the way you move and talk, You emanate youth, audacity, Swift-directness of purpose and vigor. Just like Alice, I was nervous But curious about your behavior. So I followed you around And tripped down the rabbit hole. Then as I entered Wonderland, I discoved that it was I Who pushed you To the brink of madness By shrinking the gaps Between deadlines. Oh Dear Mr. Rabbit, I apologize for my theatrical role.

What eats me out alive? It is those unspoken words expressed in a million times Behind the veil of my eyes which often breaks our hearts. But I have learned that if you love someone, One has to be brave enough to say what is on your mind To keep your love alive.

Think of me as your pen recorder. I will listen to all your woes with no judgement. When you are with me, you can be yourself. Show me your vulnerability, There is no need for pretense; That everything is okay, Or that nothing bothers you When that is not really the case. I know you are strong in all aspects, But please know that I am always here for you No matter what happens.

The idea of losing you tears me apart. It breaks the crystalline pieces of my soul, Shattering my fragile yet loving heart. It stops the pounding in my chest, Disabling my blood to circulate. My reflexes slowed, I am ASPHYXIATED. I needed your presence and love As if you were oxygenated my blood - I function best whenever you are around. ...and yes, it's a bit strange. It is dramatic to a certain extent! But these are my sentiments. When I found you lying amongst the haystack, I began to cherish you and held you close to my heart. You have become an integral part of my life.

As the clock ticks Past midnight last night, I slowly crept under the duvet wishing It was your arms that will hold me tight… I rested my head on my fluffy pillow As if it was your chest, I felt safe – no longer restless. All of a sudden, I slowly drifted into a Stygian sleep. I wasn’t writhing in bed; Not making a single sound Or even moving an inch. I was splayed like corpse Until the ray of light caressed my skin, Beckoning me to rise from the dead And behold the beauty Of the sun-kissed dawn. It reminds me That I’m not the only one Tormented by this yearning.

If a day comes That our love is tested By the searing rays Of the sun; Like a Nomad in the desert, I will persist, I’ll never give up on you Hon. I will keep on searching For droplets of reasons And rivulets of ways To strengthen our bond.

In the changing of seasons, Love either dwindles Or gets stronger. For there will be days You will cross the still waters Then suddenly face a raging storm. Sometimes you will have To walk barefoot Under the scorching Heat of the sun And little by little get dehydrated, Thirsty for one’s affection And warmth. But if you’re with me, Hon, I know love will always triumph. Since even the long distance Between us, didn’t keep us apart.

Site’s Peculiar Name
Everything isn’t purely black or white, there’s also the shades of gray where the hidden truth lies. The truth is, and will always be, different according to the person’s perspective on why they’ve handled things a certain way. That is how the author was able to use the “monochrome” as primary label. Also, attached to the site’s name is the word “reaper” which pertains to collector or harvester. By coining the term ”themonochromereaper,” the author tries to elucidate that this site searches for the ultimate truth in every situation.
“In this world where it is either black or white, the truth is in between, you just have to dig deeper.”
