Canvas

Your body is an inspiration
from which I can paint,
splattering bits of the colors you’re wearing onto my canvas

I rub color-pieces of clothes onto my canvas:
the red of your button-down shirt,
my faded blue jeans,
& your Game of Thrones socks.

I smear all of these
into the thick white canvas spread before me
& leave impressions of them in your bright-blue veins
when we kiss

I imitate Pollock,
dribbling our colors together
from huge tubes of paint
to form winding whorls

Hello! Thanks for checking out my blog! Despite being 29, I haven't lost my sense of child-like wonder for the world around me. I've been making up stories my whole life: My imaginative play with toys as a child has grown up with me, maturing into my imaginative wordplay with fantasy and sci-fi prose as well as free-verse poetry. I thrive on creating something with my hands and with my mind, using either my pen or my keyboard. When I'm not reading, writing, or knitting (or realistically, working), I'm watching Netflix, gaming, or hanging out with the people I love most: my friends, my family, or my boyfriend.
