Need for a Close Relationship

I want to be close.
I want a relationship.
I want to be friends.

I want to hug you
without it being awkward,
as if we were kin.

I want to trust you
and be happy to see you,
to call you brother.

To sit beside you,
and not have a seat between
for my own comfort.

Where I am right now,
just giving you a hand shake,
isn't close enough.

In a crowded room,
my arm should be around you
and not at my sides.

I would call you up
and talk for hou'rs on end
with this connection

I wouldn't notice
if I forget appointments
or forget to eat.

To look in your eyes.
To maintain conversation
and not glance away

You should be valued
'cause you are that important.
We should be close friends.

No wall between us.
This is the closeness I need:
you, that near to me.
