I Never Said Love

lying on the floor
maudlin oaths of bromance,
under the table

    Been-there-done-that a time or two...Gonna take a shot here: 'bromance' or 'bro-mance' a take-off on 'romance'? I'm probably WAY of base here...Good stuff! - Tim

    You got it Tim. This point is where they start saying "I love you, man...", then deny they ever said it the next day, hence the title of the poem.
