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 of forgotten friends
go unanswered

This is very fitting! I've been on this website for about two years, but I take month-long breaks now & then when I get swamped with life. I find that when I return after a month's absence, so many friends have closed up shop. It's like this community is an ever-changing entity. Your poem is full of excellent descriptions & your extended metaphor is well done, so consistent, just like I like 'em! *smile* Fondly, Margie
