Poetry: "Chrysalis"

A poem inspired very loosely by a person I met.


"CHRYSALIS"


You watch her chip away
Piece by piece, bit by bit
At the frigid walls erected
Around your wounded heart

You listen as she whispers
With patience infinite
For you to let her in
To your shattered heart

You feel it when her soul
Reaches and embraces
Washing like tender waves
Over your exhausted heart

And you await her surrender
Because she came too late
Too late to crack the chrysalis 
Protecting your broken heart
