You’re perfect in every sense of the
word. A pristine example of what it means to
live each day as if it’s a gift and not a rule. It’s just,
there are these ends. These loose ends of which I have
ignored. I thought they wouldn’t matter, that you could
be my beautiful distraction. But that wouldn’t be fair
to you, or me. And so I have to leave. And maybe
someday soon, I’ll learn to love myself. I’ll
be full and I’ll return to that smile.

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.
