When You’re Alone

Written by Jacob Ibrag

When you’re alone for a time, you are forced

to face yourself. No distractions. No running. It’s an

arranged marriage. A manifestation before breath. From

a peek into a look. Parts you’ve ignored. Thoughts you’ve

blown off. When you are alone for a time, you begin to

feel every second. You begin to remember, and

remember when you wanted to forget.

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.

  8. “From a peek into a look.” I love this poem, and may write something similar along the same lines if that is ok. I’m ok with my own company, but after too long as you say here, you start to remember the things you don’t want to. Silence can be difficult.

  12. Thanks for such insights. Much can be gained by introspection. Many masks thus removed. Lays bare the Beauty… or other-wise and ways of the Self within. Thus Work we have done. Or yet. To Do. Great reminder.
