Maybe is a no-man’s-land, 

A place of nothingness, 

No committal, no decision, 

Only slightly better than no

Answer at all. At least maybe

Deigns to acknowledge you-

I have heard your request, but

I refuse to accept or deny.

Perhaps I an waiting for

A better offer or a viable excuse-

Perhaps maybe is not better after all. 

Maybe  it’s worse.
