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.

Fears... I've got a ton of them. It's like when I try to think of my future it was nothing but bleak, dark and brooding. I'm left with fears, fears of the unknown. Yes, it can be the result of my anxiety, I just think too much... Have you ever felt this way? I knew so little of what is going to happen to me. I hadn't asked a lot of probing questions Related to this journey which is my future. It's shrouded in anonymity and I had been Submerged in my own misery. Now here I am rushing towards the unknown. I just want some time to think, Some air to breathe; I'm suffocated. After a few moments, My grief has receded a little Since I could feel this misgiving for the future; When previously I had felt nothing But the tragedy of the present. 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.”
