Fear The Killer

I see the world
through the windows
though the the doors are ajar.

The empty roads,
the silence that reign
scare me.

I withdraw quick.
Look inward
hear no noise.

I settle with a book
turns out to be a crime fiction..

Deceit followed by murder
is the theme sends
fear down my spine.

I shut the book, doze
wake up to an announcement
down the lane.

It is a loud one ordering
people to stay inside,
for their own safety.

Police , at every junction,
blow the whistle, slam
the vehicles that cross.

Corona spreads like fire.
Disillusioned I close the windows
and lock the doors.

The panic seems infectious,
frequent washing of hands,
social distancing and masks
become part of life.
