yes or no

yes or no by phil burns

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

yes or no

there are so many ways and so many words
to tell me what I need to know
but there is only one answer that means anything
just tell me if it’s yes or it’s no

there are so few requests I make of you
I make no demands on your time
but there’s always one topic you try to avoid
it’s as if I am crossing a line

is there something that I’m missing
somewhere else you’d rather go
if someone else is in your heart
why don’t you just let me know

there are so many questions unanswered
I ask but you never reply
it seems there is one word you can never say
just tell me so I understand why
