One Day

The movie was something I never expected. You could say that I'm a bit enraged by the idea that a woman's value tantamounts only to making a man decent. What of her achievements? It's one of those sexist movies wherein a gal is in a one-sided love improving herself to garner the love and attention of a man that's not really worth it. If you can still remember, the guy was a Cassanova  who can't keep his attention to his best friend that he only meets after two years. (To be continued...)

Saudade

0    
by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
The loneliness engulfs my senses Whenever you’re not around. But the love that remains Is what keeps me going. The feelings & experiences That brings about pleasure, Excitement & safety Now evokes a deep nostalgic Yearning within me. Then I told God: I wish you’re here beside me. A mixture of sadness and happiness Overflows within me – I’m missing my love Yet thankful for being loved. But why is this happening? I feel void, hollow & pathetic. I feel lost like I’m swimming Under a moonless night, Then slowly sinking in a quicksand Or helplessly drowning In a bottomless pit. Time had become irrelevant As I drift between the past And the future, Disregarding the present.

Let the treasures in this world fade away But never let our love cease to stay. For all the riches in this world Can’t equal your love. Let’s make the most Of our short lives today. Let’s live and love.

Burned Once

History tends to repeat itself. On the surface everything seems tranquil. Everyone's amicable now that they've got their minuscule share of the land. Some of the land's already been divided and settled by the lawyer. But what's startling to know is that there were more properties hidden by elders unknown to us. Personally, I don't need it for I've got no intention of living with toxic individuals in the future. It's also unwise to conduct business with them knowing how underhanded they can be. Nope, it's not a worthwhile investment of money, effort, time and affection.   I'm distressed by the thought that some people choose peace and change their perceptions whenever they receive cash or properties. Is that human nature? Sorry to burst your bubbles but I am not one of those conniving individuals nor am I a naive girl that can easily be manipulated by smooth talks and poisoned gifts. I tend to foresee things far ahead based on one's ... Read More

Family Feuds

0    
by themonochromereaper / / Opinions
What drives people to cut-throat with each other? Jealousy, greed, pride and wrath. This is pretty common in large families when it comes to getting their inheritance in the form of money & property (like land) disregarding the quantity.   It baffles me how people can live in duplicity to achieve their goals. Is it even worth the hassle? Is it worth burning the bridges of your kinsmen? Maybe yes, maybe no; It all depends in your principles - your value system.   If you ask me, I'll bluntly say no. It isn't worth the shot. For why should I fight for a legacy which doesn't amount that much when I can just make my own through my sustained efforts.   I don't desire for things which aren't freely given, same with love. But no, I am not afraid of hard work. I usually get what I want if I put my mind on it albeit, it should be worth my while, else I won't even ... Read More

Open Your Heart

0    
by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
Where there is love, There is happiness, An abundance of wealth And a surge of success. Where there is love, A house becomes a home. You’ll never feel alone anymore. You’ll share beautiful moments Until you’re both old. Where there is love There is room to grow. The passion is enkindled So there’s no place for stagnation. Where there is love, There is safety & security, No terror torments you daily. So open the door to your heart And let love enter triumphantly. It’s been knocking at your door fervently.

Mi Elegido

0    
by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
Sands of time Bring forth my Chosen One. I draw nigh to obtain what’s rightfully mine. Forgotten were the days of emptiness When I lay alone – Entombed alive, Shivering in my golden casket. I yearned for thine love to live And eke out an existence – To be finally reunited with me In this day and age. Open thy mind and think of me. Listen to my voice, dear one; Follow it, come find me. Thy heart is mine, As mine is thou’st to own. For if loneliness Were a disease you’re afflicted, I’ll be the cure to end your dolor. Come-hither my love, I know how much it hurts to be forsaken And be misconstrued by the mob. But regret no more of thy past woes. I offer thee my life, an eternal love. Let me take ... Read More

"In this world where it is either black or white, the truth is in between, you just have to dig deeper." "When misery strikes transform it into prose, poetry or short stories. Learn to tug a person's heart strings." "When you're trapped in your own misery, let the Muse guide you in creating incredible poetries." "Sometimes you tell yourself why you kept searching for that initial spark... When at the end of the day, all you really wanted was a soulmate." "Don't find love because it will come eventually. What happens, happens but until then learn to mind your own business."  "I may never be your cuppa tea, I'm an acquired taste -- coffee."    "I write based on observations, imagination and experience. There's a thin line among them. The truth is oft hidden so one should learn to read between ... Read More

Mein Schatz

0    
by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
We could be a lot of things if we so desired: Outshining the rocks living a mundane life, Undaunted by the pressures But stagnation leaves us teary-eyed. Shining so brightly at the end of the storm, The rainbow leads us to our safety; Settling all our anxieties, Leaving it all behind like breadcrumbs – Remnants of the past. All we need to do Is be resolute in our judgment Instead of staying confused –  Unable to decide. I can only hope we stay together And enjoy the remaining years We have left in our short lives. For we can be anything but immortals. Only our legacy stays after we die.

Blame Me

by themonochromereaper / / Poetry
Inspired by the movie, “Passenger.” Like a cosmic dust, I’m adrift and lost in space. I’m not where I’m supposed to be. I woke up too soon. Where’s everybody? It’s a tad lonely. It’s just me and my misery. I need somebody. Someone to share my life, my story. I’ve enjoyed the luxuries The ship has rendered. But why do I feel aimless, empty? There’s a void inside me That can never be Filled to the brim by material things. I want to live, Carpe Diem, Even if I were to die in this ship. For I cannot change anything By simply worrying. But I need you beside me: To share those beautiful moments, To hear your voice, To listen to your thoughts, To have ... Read More
