Computer Love - Poem by Hale Tsehlana

A face freckled with a million pixel shadows
tumbles through cyberspace to be with me,
and for a moment, she is mine!

I blush at the mention of your name,
my raven haired blue eyed angel.
Your invincible kiss stenciled on my lip
causes aseismic trembling of my heart.

My ear piece moans with your laughter
pushing past ions and stardust,
sending electric tremors down my spine.
Monochrome time whizzes by still I can’t let go.
Though slightly out of touch,
I am addicted to your love.
When my computer wakes me up with a beep,
your perfume wafts into the crevices of my mind
and I nuzzle up to your wire bosom in my sleep.
Your ion breath ignites passion in my body.

My cyber woman! Neither American
Chinese nor even African.
Just a uniquely blended specimen.
I pledge eternal love to you.
Signed impersonally yours,

    What a unique poem this one is. I can tell you are very creative, Hale! But I do have one question though. What happens when your computer freezes? Does that mean a break-up, or an arguement? I enjoyed your poem very much. My computer is sending your computer- A ten! (Report)Reply
