Scary reflections

Innumerable pairs of inimitable eyes…
Reflecting me to them,
And, them to me.

Not a day is spanned from this experience. Every day as I go to work, I’ve to go through this frightening experience. Those eyes don’t see me face to face but through the reflection. It’s just for a few seconds, sometimes for a split second, sometimes for more than a minute. But every time, it haunts me. Not even one look gives a warmth feeling. Every look is either lifeless or a stubborn stare. The worst part is I get to see their eyes alone but they get to see my full face. To avoid the looks, I divert my attention to somewhere and there again I see different pair of eyes giving a similar stare. There’s no escape from this situation as I’m queued up with people all around. Only thing I can do is imagine none is seeing and nothing is happening. Actually, nothing is happening except my own imagination. Suddenly, I realize I also get my chance to stare at others. Yes, I see some faces’ reflection and they see my eyes alone. I try to mimic the same scary look, thinking I’m scaring others behind me. Instead of focusing on who is watching me, I divert to who I am watching at. This is a bit relieving. But, this has its own share of scariness. Earlier experience, at least, it was only the eyes that I saw. This time I am seeing the faces. Even more worse. I start to panic and in trying to maintain the stubborn look I give the willing-to-run-away look. The heart is pounding faster but the movement is slow. Anyway I can neither backtrack nor escape. Some come very close to me and about to dash on me. I hold on to myself tight and wish such things don’t happen. When there’s a slight movement, I start to move fast and about to dash on people in the front. As I tread closer, again the scary eyes look at me. I mumble within myself, “Sss..oo..rry.” The only option left is to pray that traffic gets cleared up and all the vehicles go away so that I can be saved from the scary looks through the rear mirror…
