The Proposal

Please, just say something.
Yes or no, Maybe?
Your silence seems strong,
Is the ring all wrong?
You’re all that I am!

Please don’t be mad
I’m just unsure 
About being
Secure—with you.

Secure, huh?
Three long years
Why this, now?

I must
Say no.

    Ouch! Hearing "no" after three long years must hurt a lot. Hope this didn't really happen to you, Mike. It's a superbly written poem in form and content. Good luck in the contest. Love, Carolyn
