If I can only go back in time and spare an advice to my younger self, I would tell her to never rush in love. I would tell her that it was better to be single and alone than to be with someone who can only offer her a temporary love - an uncertain future. I would tell her that just because the one you love told you "he loves you back" to never believe it all of a sudden. Because heartache will surely be certain once she discovers that she's just his temporary love. A past time. That he has nothing to offer. Because we both know that we want a long and lasting love. We want someone who'll bring us to the altar and pledge his love - mind, body and soul. We want a grand future not a lovely past time. Sometimes, in the loneliness of the night, we soon discover that we are the only ones capable of actually loving ...

If we lived in the world Of Ice and Fire You’ll be my Targaryen And I your Stark. With your High Valyrian command, Dracarys – Dragonfire; Balerion unleashed his fire And melted the frost That guards my frigid heart, Awakening my inner desires. In the process you vanquished The White Walkers and the Wights, Keeping me safe throughout The incoming long winter nights. I can only marvel At your prominence from afar, My valiant King As I saw you with your Mighty dragon, Balerion Dancing in the sky whilst leaving.

If one day, I lose this voice That you love so dearly, Would you still love me? If one day, I lose this charm That enticed you, Would you still want me? If one day, you grew tired And found someone new to love, Would you still remember me? If one day, I lose my life That I devoted solely to you Would you mourn for me? © 2017 Mel Joy (themonochrome.wordpress.com)

In the early days, I yearned to be water. Unambiguously existing To satiate your ravenous mind And quench your parched soul. But nowadays, All I desire is to be fire, To scorch your smooth skin, Forever leave my mark Interred in your mind, Body and soul. In that way, Even if we were Thousands of miles away You'll fondly reminisce Our shared moments In lieu of being Lackadaisical, blasé, Disremembering everything Akin to a blank slate. © 2017 Mel Joy (themonochromereaper.wordpress.com) All Rights Reserved

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.”
