echoing silence

Why am I so bare?
I feel like my  body lacks bones
Unable to move … stagnant
But I can feel my soul
It is alive
It wails and moans
I am the only one who hears its anguished tones
Hiding in my shadowy corner
Trying to avoid being hit by the raining stones
How do I escape this place?
I feel imprisoned in this zone
Do I want to be freed?
Do I just want to be left alone?

    brilliant work, good imagery. reminds me of one of poems - glad to feel you are alive but not sure what it all means!

    I see a search for direction on the part of the author (you ; ) in this amazingly good poem! lines 4-9 are exceptionally good! James! in my world, I try to hit a couple lines that are filled with "PIXIE DUST" but you hit 6! (by my count) it wails and moans from somewhere in silence...whoa! great title..... rock-on! bro!!! your friend, jimbo
