These wounds won’t heal. Cuts from years

past holding onto my present. ‘Maybe you want them

to stay fresh. A constant denominator to remind you of what

face, a carving made recently. ‘Nocturnal tendencies. Waking in

similar skin. The aware and jagged edges of an unconscious.’

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.
