Just friends he said looking at her
She curled up on her blanket,
Drew the cover up around her shoulders
The cold swirling around her.
She said friends was all she could be
And looked at him her eyes apologising,
Her manner understanding his disappointment.
They enjoyed their moments together
Their conversation fulfilling
Deep and trustworthy.
But he wasn’t an attraction
She didn’t desire him as he did her
So, this was the sum of it all.
