Absent. He acts as if he’s never

really paid any attention. A ghost minding his

own business. Haunting as a by product of his own nature,

swearing by  it. And yet she sees through his words of indifference.

‘I know you care and that you’re scared because what if I won’t give as

much as I get? Treating me with warm anonymous hands, pretending

as if our bond was my hallucination. You’ve always been here,

and I need for you to know that I’m never leaving.’

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.
