Abandoned Writers Cafe

Abandoned Writers Cafe

A Poem by Relic

Empty rooms in empty halls.

Image result for abandoned books

Accounts silent, long abandoned
the words bankrupt
vacant fronts of creativity 
washed over; hallow; run down.

Verbs sway on rusted hinges
the strains of old poems
cross pages like tumbleweeds.

Profiles shuttered, desolate
unopened for years, collect dust
while messages to forgotten friends
go unanswered

You have a way with wording how it feels to abandon an account ~ I'm ashamed to say I've done that. But the imagery here is so solid, and almost haunting in a way. The desolate emptiness of an account that will never answer again. Thanks for the beautiful read ^^

We move on don't we. Often for no good reason. I have poetry that has gathered dust for over thirty years.

This is great writing.

Thanks very much, Angel. I hope not either. :)
Hmm, we may hope writerscafe does not come to this. Fortunately I've only experienced one website like WritersCafe close down, and it's people were forced to abandon with it rather than it being a choice... so I cannot say I can relate. I've often found friends on my account leave "to publish in the real world" but I just shake my head because to me there is no real-er world than this place. Where we can share as ourselves under our names or faces or none at all. It's a choice to be here and share ourselves with people we've never met before. So even if people begin to leave and abandon this cafe, I'll keep coming until I'm ultimately forced to leave.

Amazing write. Keep writing my fellow poet.
Sincerely,
- Lavi

P.S. Just realized I've read this before. Wow, four months? Here's an update on my thoughts I guess ('o_0)

I appreciate your thoughts, Lavi, thank you.
Writers come and writers go, who can see what writers know. We are fortunate to see so many good writers in the Café and to be able to share our thinking and hopefully to shape a neophyte or two along the way.

P.S. great picture.

A good write Relic, nice to see you back.

"Verbs sway on rusted hinges." I can just see them; really well done. I like the whole poem but that line is my favorite.

There's a lot of that in here. Certain people I personally really miss. But we have lives apart from here. Sometimes we go and come back.
