There's this empty feeling that I can't shake off. I feel like I am drifting in the rapids filled with skeletons. It carressed its muddy blood on me. Torned flesh clung to my naked body As I swam across the length of the Amazon Searching for my dear salvation. Dead bodies surround me. I swam till I have strength, no more. The dead looked into my eyes, They haunt me, everywhere I go. It warned, "Ariel, yours isn't the only voice, Wakeup from your hallucination." So I begged to be released and struggled. But help... it never arrived. I drowned in the sea of blood. Then I woke up to the oozing stench of the reality - My-still-being-alive. I can only remember that I slept On the wrong side of the bed Now fully awake, I clutched the sheets To find myself alone, Far from my castle, my sanctuary. Suddenly, my worth knocked on my door Telling me to eradicate the negative thoughts - Remnants from last night's nightmare; And remain positive with the situation. I promise, I will find happiness within me For the sake of ...

Was it the trojan version of lust or love When suddenly, you grabbed my face With mad excitement excitement in your eyes While we are teasing each other tonight? You must have thought it was mere play, That your touch won't hurt me If you graze me, or squeeze me tight. You seem to forget that I am a woman, Albeit not fragile, Handle me with care like a porcelain doll And leave no marks. People say that "Pain is inevetable, but suffering is not", I promise, I will never let you hurt me In the guise of rough play in the future, my love.

Yes, yes, yes. A grown man, is what he is - Capable in all aspects. Determined. Free. Fit to do whatever he likes Whenever he pleases. Yet here I was, Hovering around him As if he was a child, As if he was incapacitated When clearly, he is not. That's what he feels. Why should I dictate What he should and shouldn't do? Clearly, I have no right. Since we are both alike To some degree, I admit, I don't like the way I treat him For I am also free-spirited, independent. So instead of smothering him With unwanted attention, I should just focus on me - Which meant reverting To all my hobbies that make up My individuality. Bottomline: "We can agree not to agree, I shouldn't force my opinion on you - Do the same for me too. Could you?"

Dear Lover, Don't try to lose me Because you might just succeed And you'll end up with great regret. Don't ever let your eye wander, You said you are different; That you weren't a philanderer. Don't ever compare me with another, "I am beyond compare". My specs are high, No mediocre woman can ever acquire, Even if they climbed sky-high. So treat me well Or else I'll just wake up From this beautiful nightmare With you being left in a deep slumber. So take care, my dear lover And always remember... Don't ever try to lose me.

In most cases, people treasure the remembrance Of a distant memory than the person itself. Don't let yourself be just another memory. More often than not, it is best to shut up. But I don't want to be just another name in your list, I don't want to be just another song in your playlist. I just want you to love me Instead of associating me with anything. For the moment you try to link me with a thing, May it be a song or the voice of a beautiful vocalist, I will feel like I'm just a distant memory from your past; Like I cease to exist, Will everything be just another beautiful daydream?

There are questions we shouldn't ask, For the answers might kill us inside. Like a poison invading The crystal clear waters of a sanctuary, It slowly kills the life forms Leaving you nothing But only dead bodies.

Just like a sponge, I absorb information fast. I have to learn from my past mistakes, Wiping traces of doubts, leaving no trails of failures behind, So I won't have to pay the price. Now you don't have to worry For I'll no longer intrude in your sacred space - your privacy Nor shall I ask twice. Because like I said, I learn fast. Nevertheless, I'll still love you the same But we'll keep some space between us.

As I traipsed across the airport And turned my back against you To exit this beautiful country, A pang of sadness engulfs my senses. It's as if my heart was left with you And I feel incomplete Despite being in full control of my capabilities. But if there's is one thing I'm sure of, I'll be coming home to you soon.

Site’s Peculiar Name
Everything isn’t purely black or white, there’s also the shades of gray where the hidden truth lies. The truth is, and will always be, different according to the person’s perspective on why they’ve handled things a certain way. That is how the author was able to use the “monochrome” as primary label. Also, attached to the site’s name is the word “reaper” which pertains to collector or harvester. By coining the term ”themonochromereaper,” the author tries to elucidate that this site searches for the ultimate truth in every situation.
“In this world where it is either black or white, the truth is in between, you just have to dig deeper.”
