Faceless Beings

Faceless beings with muffled voices
stare at me through dark sunken sockets
full of fear and fright.
Muzzled and mugged,
choked and tugged;
I see them
here
there
and everywhere!
From dawn to dusk,
from dusk to dawn;
on the streets, in the trains,
on the beach and in the parks!
I know not
who they are!
Friends or foes?
Neighbours or strangers?
Ghosts or living dead?
These faceless beings!
Yet not all is lost!
One single uneffaced face
fills me with boundless joy!
One single smile on a bare face
makes my day!
One singe unmuffled “hello”
is a ray of hope!
