I roam this ancient land of words,
searching for a way to express to you
who I am,
but you will never know me....
You’ll never see the rich colours of my courage,
or the reasons for its existence.
I won’t shine on like some chosen few,
but I am Me,
and that is but a secret all in itself.
As greatly as I long for someone to know just who I am,
there will never be that someone.
I exist inside some realm of a world only known
by my perception.
I acknowledge the vastness of the world from these incomparable heights,
Knowing that I’m never better than the next, and knowing that the next will never be
better than me.
You’ll never see my armour, nor will you see it falling down.
You will never understand just where it is I’m coming from.
Because, I am Me,
and that is a secret all in itself.
The pain that I feel shall always have to be endured by me, and me alone...
for one will never understand it’s depth or meaning, or reason for existing.
Might I find that special someone who could know me just as well....no, for I mask
myself and become a martyr...hiding from the world and escaping sympathy.
Yet there are certain secret treasures that I find inside another’s arms,
inside another’s words, inside another’s voice...
I find a certain hope of understanding me, pretending that the truth is not made up of the
fact that I am Me,
and that is a secret all in itself.

Inside each of us is a person that can only be known to the individual. I think you captured that sentiment well. I have yet to try my hand at free verse, but when and if I do your's will be a level of quality I shall strive for. Thank you for sharing.

I really enjoyed this, and as usual, we have similar feelings in our poetry! Thank you for sharing this with all of us.

Heart-breaking verse, love. I hope 'tis just inspired writing and not a tale of truth, for both our sakes.
