No Means Maybe

When you’re so very  near

I can not see

You are too close

For me to know

If you are real

Or just playing the field

You have to back away

And give me space

I have to know

And feel it’s right

Don’t ask me to

Do what feels not right

Please loosen the  reigns

Don’t hold so tight

For what I want

Is not short-term

My mind is really made up

I wish for us to be

Old together

I won’t give in

So soon tonight

So please back up

And let me look

Let me discover

The chapters in your book

Let’s take it easy

Let’s take it slow

Let’s discover

If this is a go.
