HOLLOW BODIES

WRITER OF HORROR & POETRY

"I remember playing in the snow and begging for summer
while my heart was still warm like the rooftops in the city
But on the outskirts lies pity
with problems bigger than the insects below my feet.
I swear I can hear the honking of cars
I swear I can still smell flowers in the air
But sometimes cowards end up outliving noble men
and sometimes no one even cares"

-Continents - Ryan Daniel Philbeck

Somewhere a wind blows and splinters every tree yet they stand strong without the heart to even feel a single beat
And sometimes there is a plague that can never be rid
Oh how complex life can feel when you’re only living to be remembered.

Tongue of Liberation

There are places we know where our fear waits to kick in
Like a breeze that’s unknown to common flesh wrapped in skin
And when this plague sees the day where it can flourish again
I will hide
I will scour
I will never feel the blade again

Plateau

I had been told that my heart was calloused and that was the truth. I strayed from the path of happiness that was built for me but the truth is, it frightened me.
I was a tarnished soul too stubborn to open my eyes, in fear of feeling a blade that was common, restricting myself to keep happiness inside of me.
I felt everything slip between my fingers like sand while everything I loved died right before my eyes.
I have learned that I am more than just a common man because in his eyes, he can fill any empty crevice that feels unfulfilling.
I write this in hopes that a set of eyes will read this because I am attempting to reach my final form where I expel the darkness from within and give my condolences for the hearts that I have splintered.
I now find simplicity in who I have become and extinguished the hate and misery that followed me like a thunderstorm which craved my soul.
Rest easy and live a life filled with love because that is all I have to offer.
I hope you’re blossoming like you always have and I wish the best for you.
I am at peace.

Transformations

For the longest time, I felt as if I’ve needed someone to fill a void that lived deeper than the flesh wrapping my bones. I had a hole that could not be filled and I have landed on this plateau in my life where I can differentiate need and want, love and lust, strength and weakness. All I’ve needed was to love myself, even if I’m a puzzle board with scattered pieces. Everything that is broken can be fixed. Everything that is fragile can be strengthened. Life is beautiful.
