The Sketch

by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
I am an unfinished sketch In a life-size canvas Awaiting for its completion, As a monochromatic art With complex designs. But then you came along, A wandering artist Carrying your paints and brush, Splashing my black and white canvas With vibrant colors all through out. You effaced my monochromatic existence And painted my life.

What glues two people To keep them from drifting apart? Is it interest, commitment or love? While the aforementioned Evoked a profound truth That keeps the bond Let’s talk about the significance Of physical and emotional intimacy, Alright? A dwindling intimacy between lovers Makes their relationship crumble and fall But if held in consisitency Is what draws them together In mind, body and soul. It enables them to feel safe and secured For it’s an assurance that They’ll stay for sure.

Shell

by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
To love and be loved Is something only a handful Of people craved about Aside from attaining Fame, power and affluence. It’s about giving and receiving The genuine kind of intimacy. For lying on a bed of a million bucks, Counting followers in your accounts, Or manipulating people To carry out your demands, Will never be enough To fill the void inside your heart. Its absence will slowly eat you out And all that is left Is but an empty piece of shell.

So sear me with the touch Of your capable fingers, I’m not gonna turn into cinders. But if I did, watch my rebirth As a Phoenix I’ll emerge.

Luxury

I never once thought That freeing my time to talk with you At night was a responsibility. For me, every second spent with you Feels like a luxury. It’s like visiting the spa to have the masseuse Massage the sore muscles on my back. Honey, when I talk to you You always hit the right spot.
