Udit Bhatia, Poetry 2019 Shortlist

Stepping out on the tarmac,
As the new winds struck my visage.
Chasing the dreams I yearned for,
Felt like finally coming off age.
The cobbled streets and grand structures,
Pristine 'scapes all around.
The manicured views I saw,
Made my love more profound.
The dreams engulfed myself,
The infinity seemed near.
World was my playground,
Life felt on top gear!
The daily chore continued,
As I beyond the confined.
Flying like a bird, oblivious,
To what I had left behind.
Days, months of the living,
Though elite and plush.
Could not filled a void,
That I yearned so much...
