Behind and in front. The past dictating a future.

Endless chasing, fingers hovering over your shoulder. Lives

stringed in a circle. What was, is again. What is will be once more.

Looking over your shoulder, fingers edging a little closer. Behind and

in front. Chasing a familiar body that barely ever looks back. Lives

stringed in a circle. What was, is. What is will be once more.

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.

    At times it does seem like we go in a circle but we’re different each time it comes back around.
