Like A Ton of Bricks

His words hit me like a ton of bricks.
The stark, unyielding truth.
Unencumbered by unreasonable pride.
A sharp slap of critique
Refused to leave me unaware.
Awakened to an embarrassment
I'd rather not know.
It mocks me now.
Heartache that he wanted me to know.
And no place to go for solace.
