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 ^^

Tgis is so good, and true. The wanted poster line reverberates like an echo, through the abandoned vaults that all writers here will recognise. They cant all have forgotten theirlog in details :)

Thank you, Lorry.
I hate knowing that I often go long periods of time without being on my account. Aching each day to know if any of my recent writes have gotten any new reviews or wondering if any messages have been answered. It's a lonely feeling, that's for sure, but I feel that's how it is for us writers. We seem to try so hard for people to notice us, our words and talent, when often, it can be left up in the air. I enjoyed the feel of empty air, the empty questions in this poem. Thanks for letting it be known. I'm sure many appreciate it!

Thank you, Svetlana. I can relate to your review. I'm not on as much.
how funny that I would come upon this today when I opened up my account for the first time in months! Its relatable in all the most shameful ways, and the imagery is haunting and lovely. I imagine old poems of mine blowing through a run down and airy house with holes in the walls and rodents peeking at me while they munch on my unfinished stories

Ohhh much like for this one. Comparing the abandoned account as you would describe an abandoned building. Much description and detail put in this! Trés bien!

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)
