King of the Skies

0    
by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
Unlike any other birds, You never flap your wings. You soar high, up in the skies. Reaching for your dreams, Aiming to leave a legacy behind Afore you catch your last breath and die. You, who have a clear vision of the future; Are fearless, tenacious, and an achiever. You’re such a great problem solver Unlike the pigeons who complain When they suffer. I can only support you from the sidelines In all your endeavors Hon. I won’t keep you in a gilded caged Because after all, you are a free man. I only hope that as you are enjoying Your airborne journey, You will remember me from time to time.

The Final Piece

0    
by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
When true love strikes It doesn’t take long For you to finally realize. Like pieces of a puzzle Coming to its completion, Everything fits. It all starts making sense On why it never worked out With anyone else. No iota of doubt Clouds your mind. The clarity just stuns you Then it soothes and calms you. Leaving you invigorated And inspired, all through out. This is what I feel about you Hon.

Sail With Me

by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
Softly, smoothly, buoyant You traversed the barriers Across the vast oceans And mediocre seas… Carried mere travelers Old, young, excited and weary. Splash, whoosh, splash, plop You moved the ship swiftly with a  Vibrating thud, thud, thud… Splitting the clear waters With your suave maneuvers, My heart goes thump, thump, thump. Sitting on my desired spot  The breath-taking view Puts me in awe.  As waves came rippling,  I can taste the salt in the air When the cool breeze  Decided to graze me. My captain, I offer you the key to lead us Towards our destiny.

I Believe In You

0    
by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
Being with you is like Weathering out a storm Through suave and wits No matter how complex Or ginormous a problem it is. For all I have to do is Reach for your capable hands, Hold it tight, Look deeply into your eyes And believe in you with all my heart That we can solve the trials By working on it side by side. Then like a placebo effect, My worries starts to subside Akin to experiencing a low tide. Sometimes I ask myself, “What have I done to deserve you Hon?

...and sometimes it's a bliss to be ignorant for the more you know about something, the more you worry about it. I've been reading a lot of articles lately whether in social medias like Fb & Quora or other blogs to learn about a particular subject. Yes, I am the type that spends the majority of their time to search online until I got the information that satisfies me. For some reasons, it's hard to satisfy my inquiries. When a case is solved, another one pops up like a ripple effect. Being a person hungry for knowledge, I've got to pursue this neverending cycle until I'm content. Now, I know what you're thinking. I'm such a worry wart; and yes, I am. I tend to overthink. I tend to worry. Not getting a satisfying answer leaves me anxious. So I search and search like it's become an obsession. But then again, maybe I should learn to clear my head a bit and tame ... Read More

The Sketch

0    
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.

Intimacy

by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
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

0    
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.

Girl on Fire

0    
by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
You set my heart aflutter Whenever you pen These words of love Showing your innate desire. Your mere presence Sets me on fire But I ain’t gonna douse Myself in ice nor in water. 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.
