As I traipsed across the airport And turned my back against you To exit this beautiful country, A pang of sadness engulfs my senses. It's as if my heart was left with you And I feel incomplete Despite being in full control of my capabilities. But if there's is one thing I'm sure of, I'll be coming home to you soon.

I want to kiss you Until we're both breathless. I want to hug you tight Until I'm tattooed in your mind, body and soul. I will love you as if there's no tomorrow. I won't let you out my sight Nor let you slip through my grasp, Coz honey, the future has its twist and turns. To us, it will always remain unknown. In the dim days ahead of us, I want you to remember the beautiful times Instead of dwelling in our predicament, Regret and simply let go

Let me be your protective light.

You are not alone now. Let me share the pain. I will help lift your burdens.

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.

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.”
