Poem: The Words the World Hears But Never Sees

I am thousands of words,
That are never read,
The world never explored,
Never contemplated.

I hold the depth of all
Those mysteries characters' 
Motives within myself, 
Which no critic ever saw.

I contain all eye colors,
Histories of the criminal and the sage,
Maps of worlds and places,
That never made it to the page.

Without me, all the tales in the world,
Would hold a single meaning.
Without me, all beauty of exploring another world
Would be reduced to simply reading.

Those who acknowledge my existence,
Find pleasure and awe in the fact,
That their personal observations,
Were never my author's intentions.

Before I even began, I knew that it would be a difficult story to write without causing mass confusion. 
I'd never written a story anything like this before (and even now, I'm editing to change one of the storylines completely), but I knew one thing:  {My time-line could never back-peddle.}

This would prove an annoying decision, but one that drastically improved my story. Every story is different, but I can outline the logistics of what I did to make this linear timeline possible. 
First, decide your primary main character. With two stories, not just two perspectives on the same story, your story will appear to have two main characters. You…
