Poems Are More Than Words

Sometimes, I don’t write in words.
I write in gazes; in vibrations;
in simple moments of childlike elation.

We’re all poets, but know this:
No pens or pencils could write our life stories.
No metaphor can adorn your journey
like a soul collision between bodies miles apart.
No simile can unleash the kind of smile you get when
you stumble upon a loved one you haven’t seen in a while.

One look can write a thousand poems instantaneously.
But don’t mistake looks for appearances
or what you see with the eyes.


You’re a cosmic poet, meant to flow with it all.
The ebbs and flows; highs and lows.
Within, with-outβ€”all around.

This isn’t my poem. It’s only a poem when I stop
using words and meditate on the infinity
that permeates our bones;
the very fabric of all realities;
The One Soul.

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."

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. Poems are more than words,
    and more again than microsoft words,
    I’m sorry I have not a quality of poet,
    But I can develop my skills until comet,

    I make simply that I like in my life,
    Without problems, neighter duty, nor wife,
    I write, I make videos, I learn and I share,
    But I just need to work my English to care care,

    Thanks Eva to share your poems,
    It’s better for health than m&m’s,
    My comment finishes by this last rhyme,
    End of my “comment/poem” signed: Nassime πŸ˜‰
