Body Ballads (Erotic Poem)

I’m ena-mored
with the texture,allure
of freshly-fucked
sKin like a smoldered lapis lazuli
stone drenched with drizzle
during primavera’s prime

You’re a connoisseur
of that dance that needs
no standing,hand-holding

My ruby-heart was solid once
until your bow rubbed on my
strings back/forth/back/forth morphing
all of me into liquid gem,
symphonizing with the side-sweeping
cumulus clouds rumbling loud,devoured
by our bodily ballads

I clinch onto sheets,repeat
erotica memories of us but replace
you with my secret lover

Evy Zen (formerly Eva PoeteX) is a mystic poetess, eclectic artist, fiction writer, and wellness advocate who calls the Greater Cleveland area home sweet home. Born a Clevelander with a Greek lineage, the arts started being a major part of her life the moment she picked up her first crayon. To date, dozens of Evy's writings have been featured in publications like Thought Catalog, The Journey Magazine, and Journey of the Heart: Women's Spiritual Poetry. As a spoken word poet, she has also had the opportunity to collaborate with numerous musicians across the globe. Currently, Evy is the Founding Editor of Poehemian Press and runs the decade-young poetry website (formerly The Artistic Muse). Additionally, she is the author of several independently and locally published poetry books, including "Esoterra" and "Sacred Shapes." Furthermore, she works as a full-time freelance writer and editor. In 2012, Evy received a Bachelor of Arts degree (honors) in Creative Writing from Cleveland State University. She also obtained a Diploma (distinction) in Exercise Nutrition from Shaw Academy four years later. When she's not creating, Evy Zen recharges her batteries by reading her weight in books ("The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho is her personal favorite), going on epic bike rides, meditating to ambient music, and racing super cars behind the safety of her computer or TV screen.
