I need
to hatch.

For I have
been in here
far too long.

rotted
hours.

rotted
days.

I cannot
move.

I cannot
make a single
sound.

Crack
this shell

or these whites
will glue
me
down.

I love the egg metaphor. I can totally relate, but probably not in the same context in which you wrote it.

awesome! I love your stanzas, and how the line breaks add to the tension.
