Dedicated to the youth. We are humans, we feel as well as think.  We are capable of all the emotions there is. We are innately given a choice. To create and destroy is our prerogative.  We either gain or lose ourselves. We can be transformed into enlightened beings Or become a monster of consequences. There will always be struggle. We are essentially created of both yin and yang. We can fixate on becoming partial or impartial. Nothing can change that but us alone. At the end of the day, all we do is live. 2017 Mel Joy (themonochromereaper.wordpress.com) All Rights Reserved

Omnipotent

"No one I knew was quite like him." Back when I first saw him, I chastised myself for checking The minute details of his outfit; It was just sophisticated. I wondered then why   I should think about his aesthetics When clearly it was his personality That dominated the room. His entire being expresses power And that's very rare these days. He's six feet four, His nose was aquiline And slightly arrogant; But of course the most startling Feature was his pair of eyes. Little did I know that those eyes Would haunt me forever.  2017 Mel Joy (themonochromereaper.wordpress.com)

Fears... I've got a ton of them. It's like when I try to think of my future it was nothing but bleak, dark and brooding. I'm left with fears, fears of the unknown. Yes, it can be the result of my anxiety, I just think too much... Have you ever felt this way? I knew so little of what is going to happen to me. I hadn't asked a lot of probing questions Related to this journey which is my future. It's shrouded in anonymity and I had been Submerged in my own misery. Now here I am rushing towards the unknown. I just want some time to think, Some air to breathe; I'm suffocated. After a few moments, My grief has receded a little Since I could feel this misgiving for the future; When previously I had felt nothing But the tragedy ... Read More

How I wish things worked out the way I wanted to. There's the initial hate and regret once a relationship has ended. But I can't deny the fact that there were also good times; shared memories that I'll cherish forever. I do admit that I'm not faultless, I am only human. Writing about you helps me deal with my pent up feelings; it enables me to find closure so that a day will come that I'll just smile and not frown at the thought of you. You were a lesson I have to learn and a chapter I have to close. Yes, I do want to write about you Despite the things that we've gone thru. Because once upon a time You were a part of me, as I am of you. In a way, our shared experiences molded me To the sort of person I am today. Let's face it, we've got our fair share of fun and Drama due to our combined dramatic ... Read More

Spellbound

I was utterly spellbound the moment I met him. For some unknown reasons I can't seem to look away from him. It's as if my whole being was begging for him, craving for his attention. It's as if he's someone I'm meant to be with because I usually feel nothing from men who sought my affections. There's this spark that suddenly ignites in my heart, mind and soul; and those eyes, yes, they held me captive. But for how long? If you saw him, you would know Why I was drawn to him. He's got a pair of blue eyes  That seems to know everything. They were the shade of steel or ice. With one glance, it can bring chills Down to your spine. I've never known a man who can quell With just one look. He was emanating with raw power. One which I so desire and ... Read More

It was a hectic day. I didn't have the luxury to go to the restaurant or cook since I have to go some place asap. So I opened the fridge and grabbed my on-the-go liquid meal. I shook the bottle, unscrewed the cap and removed the seal. But this action actually made pause for a moment. It made me think about people and how their mind works. I started comparing individuals with this bottle. Everything is sealed tight, just like their mind. They have secrets and ulterior motives that made them act the way they do. In a nutshell, you can't really judge a person and the authenticity with their actions. You just never know. Everything we see might just be pure decoration. However, even if we don't really know the depths of a person's mind we still fall in love with them. To me, that's akin to a strange ... Read More

Dedicated to the one who can't be named. Our relationship could've been saved Had I been of a different temperament. Meekness was the sort of quality I never possessed. I wasn't slave material. I'll never be accused of the folly Of jettisoning my career For an unstable relationship. In this way, when we do part ways I will not bitterly regret anything But just keep on living.

Dedicated to the one who can't be named. In his own twisted way, He loved me because no one Can be as close to him as I was. Only I can understand The constant demands of his artistic And entrepreneurial ego. He created a picture wherein I was constantly in the background. One where he can always return to. 2017 Mel Joy (themonochromereaper.wordpress.com) All Rights Reserved

Dedicated to the one who can't be named. I now realized that he was too young to cope up with the onslaught of adoration that came his way. There were those that smothered him with adulation; beautiful, rich and influential. It was inherently inevitable that he'd take a fancy. I couldn't blame him. But how can you blame someone who's trying to remain faithful with you but finally responded to their urges? I can see him suffering and it's affecting our relationship. He was flocked by harpies, the temptations just naturally followed him around. It's only a matter of time... It's not as if he has an ironclad feelings and discipline towards his urges like a monk. No, he's a warm blooded young man filled with energy. But before you say it, let me make it clear that I'm not making excuses for him. I did my best to understand the logic behind his actions and sometimes we just have ... Read More
