I'm Nobody, Who are you?

I'm Nobody! Who are you?
Are you – Nobody – too?
Then there's a pair of us?
Don't tell! they'd advertise – you know!
― Emily Dickinson

I'm nobody
inside something's burning, maybe
it's my rage, swelled with no outlet
it dances, round and round it goes 
never halts, no one's to stop
where it will go
how it will leave 
nobody knows, not me.

I'm nobody
there's a voice that seeks  medium 
expand and diffuse in natural ways
but I scream so quietly, a hush 
echoes within, rises, simmers
where this all will fly 
how this all will settle down
nobody knows, not me.

I'm nobody 
there's a crave to punch so hard 
fight till last, till this beating heart
leave a mark, a scar, all to see
carrying the sky in my fist
where to discharge 
how to know, to be sure
nobody knows, not me. 

what you perceive of this world of mine 
what you equate between you and me
I keep searching, it goes wide
but what I'm searching
where I'm searching
how can anybody know but me
is it everybody's tale
I'm nobody..
