TheStoyTeller's Profile Picture
Jordan C. Lewis
Artist | Hobbyist | Literature
United States
armed and recycled


She was practical.
A complex algorithm,
set in her patterns and equations.
She was framed in powerful numerical
overtures, filled in with alphabetical
components and partners.

She needed a mathematician.
One who could figure her out.
solve her, and leave her undone.
Not a poet,
not one who would ponder how
she contained the ocean in her eyes,
not one who would wonder
and awe at the symmetry in her movements.
She needed a confident,
a brain, not a heart,
not I
I am still caught up in yesterday;s blinds
cobwebbed in the dust of your eyelashes
looking for an iris
and sticking to your blankets
like sage sticks to soot ridden walls.

the halls of your house were catacombs,
and my footsteps were music
to the skeletons in your closet.
they danced around your tomb of clothes
and misleading endeavors.

you miss me, in there,
but I will not dig you up again.
your denim stuck to old cd's
and mix-tapes that you found
under the bed of threadbare marriages.

you knew you would live the world,
see ocean's that would take you home
smell the air perfumed with the skies breath
but you would not love.
not darkly as the ones before you did.

you kept that denim to yourself.
you listened to the walls
in the loneliness of your room
and unafraid of solitude.

Just wanted to add: The fact that your last name on here is C. Lewis is utterly thrilling--even if it is just a pen name.   That is all. And, in the words of Sting, "I'll be watchin' you." ^^

Ah, one of my favorite authors of all time is C.S. Lewis.  So, I heart the people who bear similar names. XD
