Concerning Jordan and Ellie

There are things Jordie will never tell his girl, but he thinks them anyway.

She was silence in a world of sound,
Mercury in a porcelain frame,
Innocence and sweetness in undiluted purity.
Her mind was rich;
Her heart was bottomless;
Every part of her humbled him.

Joy and light,
Melancholy and thought,
Intense in a way the world was not.

She complicated his life.
Because of her, he felt things;
Things that did not need feeling.
Loving her was realizing that ordinary was so very vivid in her eyes.
Loving her was realizing that he’d never truly loved anyone before her.
