Contradicting thoughts. She wants

to stay home, alone and comfortable. And yet she

dials anyone willing to listen. ‘I can’t stay here, nothing ever

happens.’ Hands slide into the warmth of her old gloves. The thick

of Winter. The paralyzing winds of stagnation. A friend waits. She

doesn’t want to be here. The cold side of a pillow calling out

her name. A hat a size too tight. ‘This is a mistake.’

Over the years Eyes + Words has turned into a wonderful budding family of over fifteen thousand people across all platforms. It’s surreal and humbling to know that the art of poetry and story is alive and thriving. That being said, I hope that the creation of the Eyes + Words Writers Group serves as a vehicle and launch pad to help and support writers and the aspiring ones to keep manifesting words that many out there are searching for everyday. So go on and contribute, lets elevate together. Everyone is encouraged to share their experiences with anything involving writing.
