Is It Asking Too Much

Is it asking too much 
to smile when the sun hits your face?
To not let mistakes define you, 
or to be the exception to grace?

Is it asking too much 
to soothe the ache,
to not feel the dagger,
‘neath the ‘fine’ that you fake?

Is it asking too much
for a taste of peace
that lasts more than a moment 
that’s more than a tease?

Is it asking too much 
to lie down with hope 
and not feel so alone 
dangling from rope

Is it asking too much
to want to live
instead of just wondering 
if you’ve no more to give

Is it asking too much
to let love in
instead of pushing away
and running again

Answers to questions,
I’ve no such luck –
Just wanting to breathe
May be asking too much
