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 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Rhyme scheme - ababbcbc cdcdee ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ © Hitendra Mehta Placed 4th in Members Contest – The Spenserian Sonnet by Dr Ram ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

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
