When She Had Said "NO"

When she had said "No" -
He did not look into her eyes, and
See the heart framed in a casement of pain.
He had taken it to be so,
For he had misunderstood her.
If he had asked her once more, just once more,
Then her pride dissolved..
She'd have rushed him.
Instead he walked away,
Bearing a pain that she had
Not wished to inflict on him.
He had not understood her condition!
Was it too her fault?
