Belonging ♥ (poem)

in the past, when i found love, i put her
in my pocket or in a heart locket.

now, i hold her–not too tightly and allow
her to dwell amongst the stars.

love is never kept. love–the true kind
was never meant to be a belonging,
if anything a longing & a sense of belonging.

love is infinite like sky–
when did you ever see walls or
ceilings or cages in outerspace?

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 www.Poehemian.com (formerly The Artistic Muse). Additionally, she is the author of several independently and locally published poetry books, including "Esoterra" and "Sacred Shapes."

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.
