I dwell in the heart of my city.
I hardly feel suffocated here
Among all the congestion
And over-tight scheduled have-to-dos.

I love the fastness of the metro city,
I love the speed of the cars,
I love the dust, pollution,
Even the tight traffic .

Last night I was standing with
Two close friends on the top
Of a high-riser, not a skyscraper though...
And I had a perfect feeling of OTT.

It was my first time,
When I sensed properly my presence
So Much above earth.
I felt it.
With winds slapping hard against my face
And body,I stood straight to emulate.
I faced it all .

But at a certain point of time
Looking at the sky
And realising its vastness
I felt lonesome
For a few moments,
It was stertorous.
I felt a consternation
As if some apparition
Was present there.
We were discussing about UFOs
And ETs and UAPs ,
Which were just apposite and apropos.
I myself somehow felt like that..:P
It was a mixture of soo
Many thoughts and emotions
And feelings....
Standing Up above the word so high..!!
But above all, and still it was
Over The Top.

[P.S: Perhaps it would have been better if I wrote this one in essay format, yet I wrote it in poem format, just like that. I felt like doing like this only...:), still a bit OTT feeling ..hihi...:)..just wanted to express a bit of my thoughts and feelings as I always do here in my blog, which is actually a vent for my feelings and also provides me a scope to peep in your world..:) ]
