Blank Canvas--By Blanca Alicia Garza--United States

Blank Canvas

Take my skin as a blank 
canvas and write your
dreams and hidden desires, 
let your heart guide your hand.
Write where no one has
been tempted to write yet.
Run your fingers, touch my skin
and feel my wounds, my pain,
venture there once more.
Make your mark upon my soul;
and I will stay by you forever.

  1. Dear Blanca,
    Thank you for this truly unique poem.

  2. Blanca is a poet full of sense. she can arrest her sensations in such an enthralling way that it easily and quickly captivates readers' hearts, opening before them a wide range of imagination, through her simple and figurative language in an flagrant imagery, reflecting her inwards so fresh, steaming and radiating onto the external world. she is intoxicating.

  3. Dear Blanca, title got my attention content captured my mind and heart.
    Very well said.
