What are the things
That make up
A man’s ego

Does it spill if tipped
Will it dry if covered
Can it be picked up
And placed back in a cup

Is the cup the soul
Of men and of fish

I wish upon a falling star
That I have the humility
To earn your confidence
And the confidence
To instill your trust

I wish to one day
Be more than friends
But of lovers’ crush

All ego aside
I don’t want to be your man
I want to be your best friend

As in
I believe in
In us
