is it too much to ask?
is this too much for you?
no, you say—
no, you say?
so you say, but
you mean yes.

do you call this commitment?
do you think me a comet,
(commit)
pretending
(do it)
to fall?

sink, slow
down, no,
i can’t take it,
i don’t want to take it,
help me, sorry;
don’t help me, i’m sorry

let me
   fa
      ll

(but promise to catch me)
personally, it's hard to ask for help because i wonder if they're really sincere or think i'm a pest. obligation is a strong thing, after all, but not always good. if anyone's wondering though, i'm fine.
