Posted in To My Friends

Thank You! :)

The support I have received on this blog has been truly overwhelming! After posting daily for so long, I have decided to shift my focus and take a long break (possibly a permanent one) from posting poetry online. Truth be told, I’ve been so wrapped up in  “likes” and “comments” and “followers” that I’ve lost sight of why I’m doing this whole thing in the first place. Is it really to merely inspire others or is it to also feed some kind of persona (The Ego)? I am not just a mystical poet or even an artist. I am so much more than that… I just Am. I’ve realized Being me is better than Having all these titles. It is time for me to focus on being humble.

One of my goals is to get a book of my spiritual poetry published someday, so I have set most of my writings to private.

Thank you so much to those of you who have read my work, encouraged me, and inspired me. You all mean a lot to me. ❤ If you wish to keep in touch, feel free to contact me here: I’m still keeping this site up because I’d like to keep on reading your blogs and comment when I can. 🙂

Take care!



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.

  1. This is a sad thing to hear. From a personal point of view, I love reading your poetry and the way it makes me feel after reading – I never find that in my own writing or from the people that surround me daily. You and your words are like my personal sunshine. And I am sure many others feel that way.
    At the same time, I understand you gotta do what you gotta do. I am looking forward to anything you publish.
    If you have my e-mail, or FB, or anything, don’t ever hesitate to write to me 😀


    1. Thank you so much! You have always been so kind to me. I’ve always been a fan of your work and it’s an honor to be published in the Tophat Raven. This decision does make me sad, but I know it needs to be done. Feel free to add me on FB.



  2. It will be disappointing to be unable to read your inspirational pieces almost every time I happen to leap onto WordPress, but I understand how a blog can become quite dominating. I have heard people write (heard people write? I must have very good hearing!) about how using a blog kept them from writing their dream novel.
    I wish you all the best in your travels Ma’am, and I do hope you discover what it is that you are looking for and achieve in your endeavors. You are a very capable young woman so I just know that you will be successful – just don’t forget about us little people on the interwebs when you are living it rich on all the money from your books!
    If I don’t ever comment on your blog again, I wish you all the best in life, love and happiness.
    Kind regards,


    1. Greg! It is so lovely to hear from you. It is rather unfortunate that I decided to no longer be active here, now that you are. That can’t stop me from visiting my WP friend’s blogs however. 🙂 Hope all is well.


I value your thoughts. :)
