Between States

Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘This isn’t a joke,’ she whispered. I wasn’t laughing,

and yet I wasn’t being serious. Reduced to a ghost in a dream,

the kind that tries to guide the sleep. I was awake in this moment,

and she was stuck between states. ‘This isn’t a joke,’ I repeated.

She wasn’t laughing, and yet she wasn’t being serious.

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. I love how all of your poems flow in a sort of stream-of-conscious style. Reading your poetry feels like swimming through mystical water, and I love it. 😊
