Best Friend Poems: 23 / 500

A Temporary Man

Rating: 2.9

A temporary man
can
be a good distraction
when filled with action
of the physical sort,
a real sporty sport.
Any port in a storm,
so they say.

But

a permanent man
can
be a true mate,
her best friend
who's willing to lend
a helping hand
day or night,
do what's right,
hold her tight
and just love her,
and love her,
and love her.........forever.

This life is temporal. So do not look for a permanent partner. Very good expression.

The observation here suggests the temporary man is endowed with certain attributes considered favorable. I see no evident plan of elimination. My question is.....could there possibly be more here than you're sharing? ? ? ? Whatever.....it's a 10....... Thanks...

Most of my women friends have this dream, that they will meet the.perfect' man. When you find him tell me who and where he is as I need a pair of old walking boots mending...
