I Love You Man!

Tell your best mate that you love him
and tell him that you miss him
embrace him warmly when you meet
and if you have to
reassure him
this does not mean you want to fuck him!

Just let him know you value him
that you're glad he's in your life
confess you have no interest
in making him your wife

ask him how he's doing 
and be prepared to listen
provide encouragement to share
it could become a weekly mission

be accepting of the laughter
or the outpouring of tears
discuss your insecurities
and admit your greatest fears

challenge the age old bullshit
society attaches to male pride
stand up, stand strong
and be a man
and learn to show
your softer side

It can be argued that real friendship is the purest form of love and the points in this post are well made.

Hello Matthew, Thank you for this poem of truth. As a gay man it is good to hear that straight men can feel that special bond with a friend without it being misinterpreted. Noth that I ever thought otherwise. The poem is well constructed and equally well thought out. Thank you indeed. Keith
