Do you love me?

Maybe! or is that I may be?

The one-word maybe is either a modifying adverb (Maybe I love you), a modifying adjective (Love is a maybe thing), or a noun (That’s a definite maybe).

The two word may be is the verb “to be” aided by the adverb, may. The truth of the matter may be dependent on your kiss.
