One Day you will Read about this Place

I know I will be gone then
My head will have strung itself to my feet
I will have walked miles with my heart
When you start the first chapter

One day you will read about this place
A place never written about
The place I wrote in my head
While you were away I thought
I want you to read about this place

You will read about a place
That I have been to all this while
A place you will never get to
But a place I know all about
Because I created this place

One day you will read about this place
In my absence you will feel the gap
The gap that never was
When I first wrote the preface
A gap that now sits on the blurb

And while you read about this place
I will sit in your head all along
Begging your mind to rewind
What you have been force fed
Before you read about this place

One day you will read about this place
Between your soul and your nails
You will find your heart trapped
In a web of sisal and spaghetti
All dipped in your mustard sauce

When you read about this place
Dare not mention my name
For my veneration isn’t yours
Though we shared a sliced heart
While I wrote about this place
