little soul

you broke the shell
the cocoon that protected me
in a warm enfolded state
but nothing resembling
a beautiful little soul
emerged
from the chrysalis
nothing graceful spread its wings
nothing beautiful or free
you broke the shell too early
to reveal the grotesqueness
of the half formed worm
of the nascent butterfly
i might one day still be
you broke the shell
not caring to see
and then turned away
from the essence of me
existing in possibility

little soul
