Dedicated to dreamers. You felt dead inside, Hollow to the core like  A zombie, oozing out With a putrid miasma Of acquiescence to Your L'amour's downfall. You pondered, "should I still believe in love  When now, I just feel Nothing at all?" But soon you started  To mend inside and  Learned your worth;   You begin to have a Guise of life once more. You deduced you can heal As long as there's hope But it's a wrist-wringing And a fist-clenching work. © 2017 Mel Joy (themonochromereaper.wordpress.com)

"I can't control your behavior; nor do I want the burden...but I will not apologize for refusing to be disrespected, to be lied to, to be mistreated. I have standards. Step up or step out." Steve Maraboli Once again, it seems that this love and hate relationship between siblings has been brewing. I thought that this relationship would get better as we got older but that doesn't seem to be the case. I'm reigning my temper as I'm the eldest, but last time I finally told her my sentiments. I am the type of person that doesn't let my emotions overpower my rational thought but I do experience an overwhelming emotion or outburst after being mistreated especially if ... Read More

According to Norman Cousins,“Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.”  So what is it? Is it the hope inside us? Is it the will to live? Or is it the dream? I'm baffled by this. (I'll be updating this as soon as I have my answers...till then).

I was inspired by a song of the same name... But I'm still trying to find out myself if I still believed in it. (To be updated...)

Dedicated to everyone who lost their canine friend. It has been a day since you've been gone. You lay there frigid, unmoving Besides the doorway and I thought it was just the heat Or you were just playing dead... The climate has been changing Lately to varying extremes. So I fetched and sprinkled you With water to freshen you up a bit, But you're not moving at all... As I stood there motionless, A silent scream escaped my throat As tears cascaded down my cheek. How was I supposed to know this Was the end of you, my friend? I never imagined that this would  Be the day you meet your lonely end. It's just this morning you were So gay, full of life and playing around. But now you're ... Read More

Dedicated to individuals whose minds were riddled with questions... Sleep rarely visits me anymore, And it left me wondering about the ff: What have I been anticipating for? Or to be more precise in the matters Of the heart, who am I waiting for? My mind's just downright bothered. How can someone touch our lives And make us feel oh so vulnerable But at the same time fill us with vigor? Will they run away after discovering Our inner demons & hidden skeletons? Or will they acknowledge us for who We really are? I can't help but wonder... 2017 Mel Joy (themonochromereaper.wordpress.com) All Rights Reserved
