I Left

Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘You remind me of a song.’

What’s it called? ‘Can’t remember. It

was from a different timeline.’ Did we meet

then? ‘We kinda did. We danced at some club and

then I left. You asked me to stay and I wish I did. Never

saw you again after that night. You disappeared and so

did I.’ And now you’re here, a second chance. ‘And

now I stay, existing with you next to me.’

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.

  2. We normally don’t and won’t get a second chance at love, and so now the second time we’re presented with it, we should, take it in our arms…

    What’s it called?’ Can’t remember. ⇛ When you can’t put a finger on the quality a certain person carries but you like it, whatever it is 🙂
