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.
