My fingers froze on sultry noon

I was obsessed
with a thought of winning her
but my true feelings she never assessed
yet hope I lost never
hoping that positivity wins ever
I continued to impress with feelings pure and true 
she smiled, said meet at marriage court next hour
madly joyous, dreamt proposal-cum-marriage, wait worth due

There she was with her fiancé, me not having any clue   
my world came crashing down
she just wanted me to be witness for their vows “ I do”
my fingers froze on sultry noon 
still somehow signed the Register
thinking destiny wishing for me something better

    If she had known how you felt about her, she probably wouldn't have invited you to be a witness at her wedding. Excellent twist in your sonnet, Hitendra. Congratulations on your win in Dr. Ram's contest! Love, Carolyn
