Written by Jacob Ibrag
I reached for the flames, willingly. I
knew the repercussions and reached anyway.
Third degree burns through the layer of my skin.
Third degree burns feel different than I imagined. I
scream at first and live through the pain. I clasp
my hands and marry my own existence.

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.
