Written by Jacob Ibrag

It feels like sinking. Like you’re trying to break the waters

surface with every kick your body delivers. You remember that panic causes

more panic so you try to remain placid. Deeper. You think about love and if you really

had it. If it was really love then why hasn’t it lasted? Maybe if it was real love, you would’ve

already been found. And if it was real love, how could it ever die out? Deeper. You try forming

a symbiotic relationship with the water, letting it take you so you can become a part of it.

You’ve always belonged here. Deeper. You let go, giving up the fight. Remembering

that it was all in your head as you wake up in the middle of the night.

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. It’s always, very difficult, to find the right kind of love that we truly deserved, until we learn to accept and love ALL parts of our selves, the good AND the bad. All the love we will EVER need in this life, is always right here, within each and every one of our selves!
