Times Two Wear Hard On Me - Poem by Aniruddha Pathak

No doubt you promised, assuring me
You’d come, still, lost I was awaiting—
One, ship-wrecked for a rescue mid-sea,
But seldom can words give fair inkling.
Fearless brave oft live thru times of scare,
Worried was I what if you can’t come—
The world’s full of trouble from nowhere,
What if changed mind sets you off my dome?

I thence lapsed into what when you leave,
If at all or when you’d come again,
Worse it was than death, scarce you’d believe,
And e’er since, a wreck I am in pain.
Times only two wear hard upon me,
Ere you come and it’s time to leave me.
_____________________________________________ ________
One lost in love gets lost in thoughts waiting for his beloved
who was expected as per a meeting date fixed earlier. The
sonnet is set in nine syllabic anapaest metre, not the usual
iambic penta-metre.
