My Pixelated Lover by Shiksha Dheda

My pixelated lover


My keyboard.

Your screen.

Our distance.


Your silence.

My impatience.

Our togetherness.

Our new caress.

I miss you.

I whisper.



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.
