Kindled

I have singultus
and no amount of sugar
or water will cure this.

I try holding my breath.

One.
Two.
Three.

Gasp.

In the beats.
Silence.

Should I say this?

Or wait until this passes
& I’m no longer burning?

I can’t pause this anymore.

I must release this captivation.

You are calling,
I’m sorry I keep ignoring.

Forgive my ignorance-
I do not know how to take
persistence asking to be,
not begging my strive.
