The Covid Shift
An ocean of expressionless faces,
I offer them a smile,
This veil paints me expressionless as well.
Anxiety ridden and lonely,
Media as toxic as the virus,
Must not embrace anyone.
Time ticks by slowly as dates fly by,
Events and expectations cancelled,
Growing numb to the daily cases.
Normal is an illusion,
Overwhelmed with humility,
When will this end?
