'Bad Egg' (Original Poem 2/26)

Bad Egg - K.G.

I thought I found my Humpty Dumpty.
I put his heart back together again. 
But he was broken beyond repair. 
Jagged and sharp;
Cutting me like shrapnel.

Beneath the fractured shell 
There was no smooth coating.
Boiling on the surface;
Ready to explode. 
But I was the lone casualty. 
A casualty of love unrequited.
