He liked her
Loved her
And she did, too

Just not in the way he'd hoped

He wanted more
But she was content
He didn't want to hurt her

And neither did he want her gone

She loved him
Liked him
Not in the way he'd like

But she couldn't love in that way
She loved platonically
Romance never interested her

Such the notion wasn't necessary
But still she loved

In the way that she could

She loved him
And, so, she was content
And he wanted more

But he couldn't have it

She was interested, not in that way

She loved only platonically
