My voice was mute

It felt all different, something has changed
The look of the world is not the same
Faces wrapped in masks, identity blurred
I opened my mouth to ask and I spoke
But no one heard me as my voice was mute
Sounds went silent, words were not talking
Have I gone deaf or the world is tongue- tied
Someone tapped on my shoulder and showed a sign
” Speak with your eyes”
I looked at the world again and clearly saw
It has changed, people are talking through eyes
Pretence and twisting of talks are forbid
You speak exactly the same ’cause eyes can’t lie
A beeping sound….oh can I hear again!
No, I have woken to the world of sounds…
