Poetry

Kept

Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘We just had a fight, and you left for

the very first time.’ Did you go after me? ‘Should

I have? I don’t think you want to see me, at least not for

a little while.’ A little while. Promise you’ll wait, it can’t be

that bad. ‘This was different. You gave me a look I couldn’t

recognize.’ I’ll forgive you, no matter what’s happened.

I’ll come back. ‘That’s the thing, this wasn’t me.

You kept a secret and I found the key.’

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.
