“Do you know what tragedy is?”
He came from a place where he wanted to take things slow until he was certain he can be the man for her. He has not reached his goal yet so he keeps his feelings hidden. He’s waiting for his chance.
She, on the other hand was at a place where she was ready to take the chance, if he’d only aske her to. But with his silence and avoidance she thinks there’s no place for her affection in his heart. So she wraps her hopes and feelings and releases it to the winds.
While he’s waiting in hope, she walks away in heartbreak.
