I never loved the summer. To me, it spells out D-i-s-a-s-t-e-r. The scorching heat always creep In all crevices it seeps; Withering the beautiful Bouquet of perfumed flowers I love to keep. *** I love taking long walks Especially when the autumn leaves Kisses the frost on the ground. It signifies that Your love for me Will always come around Even if one day you’ll suddenly Fall out of love. *** But like the law of gravity, You can never deny That you want to be with me. Trapped in a never-ending cycle, You’ll keep falling for me Like autumn leaves. So let’s enjoy the tranquil clime And love’s sublime. *** Come on, hold my hand. Let’s kiss the past woes good bye And trail-blaze this mundane world Now that our life intertwines. We’ll never let a void Develop inside our souls each night. So let’s show our love, Before bidding each other good night.

The little flower Finally bloomed last summer As it basked in the warmth Of the dazzling sun. It wasn’t peculiar for it to follow The sun’s direction, Since the sunlight was the source Of its nourishment. But soon enough, This flower began to wilt and wither For there was an absence Of flowing water. As this beautiful flower gracefully Descended to the ground, I realized that fall Has finally arrived.

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.

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 the pain away. Give in to me, my love.

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.

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 your arms wrapped around me Like your whole life depends on it. So I woke you up too early. Can you blame me? I can only ask for forgiveness Since I’m aware I’ve been too selfish. However, is it terribly disappointing To spend your waking moments with me? If not, let’s enjoy the remaining years We have in this intergalactic journey. Love me.

This is a response to Edgar Allan Poe's poetry, "Annabel Lee" - One of my favorite poems albeit tragic. In this case, a lifetime will never be enough to love someone if your life was suddenly curtailed. If I was Annabel Lee, I don't want the one I love to suffer, I want him to live a life full of bliss. But I can't deny the fact that I want to be with him. Don't mourn for me. Departed I am now from mortal envy, Perpetually entombed in a sepulcher by the sea. My life's too short to love and be love by thee. If only I was physically stronger, The cold wouldn't have killed me swiftly. If I were still alive and breathing, We would have gotten married And grown old together, thou'st see? My dear Gent please forgive me. As I looked at thee from heaven: I want to wipe the hot tears That cascaded thy pristine cheeks And embrace thee Whilst thou'st lay beside my tomb Dreaming of me, yearning for me. But I'm ...

Immortal Beloved, I can't get you out of my head. The music you proffered Evokes a combo of euphoria and melancholia. Those forbidden chords of love Caused my heart to awaken after a millennia. My heart starts stirring Every time I hear you singing, I find your voice exceedingly titillating And your words of love enticing. But if I can't hear you any longer Let me feel the remnants of your specter. Sear me with your embrace, Allow me to experience your passion and desire. It can make our love stronger and last forever.

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.”
