Poetry by Jamie McKenzie

Your silence struck me

Over and over
Like some loudly ticking
Grandfather clock
Your silence struck me
Hammered me
And left me stunned

Wondering just what you meant
What you had in mind
In your heart
What you intended
How you felt
I could only guess
And imagine
The worst

Your silence struck me like a hammer
Each passing moment
Another blow
After question
Smashing up against my soul
Leaving me speechless
And broken
