Your screen.

Your silence.

My impatience.

Shiksha Dheda is a South African of Indian descent. She uses poetry(mostly) to express her OCD and depression roller-coaster ventures. Mostly, however, she writes in the hopes that someday, someone will see her as she is; an incomplete poem. Sometimes, she dabbles in photography, painting, and baking lopsided layered cakes.
