Wanted Sacrifice



The days are growing longer
My body has been frozen in a somewhat comatose state
The ejection has failed
Ejection cannot be deployed
Fetal abandonment has been delayed
Arms and legs have been removed
But the head and torso still remains
Embedded deep within
This accursed being refuses to leave
It is forever attached
Growing and growing
Feeding
It feeds within me
Leeching my very being
Absorbing the essence
I grow despondent
As I bleed and bleed
Begging for this creature to flee
The fetal desertion shall not proceed
This being
This thing is slowly consuming me
Surely I shall die
But to die will mean failure
This monster shall be removed
It is my wanted sacrifice
