WHEN WE WERE CLOSE WE BOTH BECAME VERBOSE 

The gentle man said words he'd never said to a man before
he spoke as honestly as when a pacifist says “i hate war”
we both came from the north and were exiled to the south
as I listened to the gentle man say words from a heartfelt mouth

we tried to spend as much time together as we could
I, a man not so gentle and he, a man born to be good
he said those words and it touched my heart
and the worst feeling was when he would have to depart

those words emanated from the soul of a heart made of gold
and often he would play his guitar only for me to behold
before him all my friends were junkies and fools
this gentle man followed orders as we fools broke all the rules

he said words he'd saved, I suppose, for someone he knew who cared
and we'd trade stories, some of them embarrassing yet they were bared
I speak to the gentle man as if he were my friend for years
and though we only met recently as he spoke I was loosed from my fears

we were both heterosexual but were made to be brothers
and as I mentioned, he was unlike any others
a true friend who appreciated the time we shared
and by some inexplicable force we somehow were paired

this gentle man spoke words he'd saved for a lucky man like me
and those words flowed from his mouth so easily
in mid-step he stopped as if by cue
and said “i've never said this to any man but brother I really do love you”
