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 ^^

But every once in a while an echo from the past reverberates through the present moment.

YES! I have returned after years away and hoped to connect with so many who have long abandoned their accounts. I hope they are still writing, they are missed. Meanwhile I am finding new writers, reconnecting with some who are still here and finding myself again as well.

The dust and cobwebs that covered abandoned accounts have an eloquent voice via your poem to them all!

I just joined this site a few days ago and I already have more beta readers for my novel than I do on Wattpad, which is one. lol. No but on a serious note this is a very nice little piece, I definitely get the "ghost town" vibe on this site, I go to some people's profiles and they haven't posted anything for yearsssss lol. Much different than stuff I see on Wattpad.

The internet's a vast ocean so easy to travel with many a shore just a push of the button away. While we stay in one café and get cosy on the island it can seem as though a writers words become "bankrupt", but... I like this poem, Relic (appropriate pen name): it speaks more about the anchored (or the wrecked) than those who have raised their sails and caught the wind. What is it like to have a boat and keep it locked in the garage with the dirt floor? In world of transition, change, and mutability is it the stagnant who are lost? What is a highway if everyone stands still? These are the kinds of questions inspired by your poem. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks, Bacchus.
There are a writers I miss and those I don't. Those I miss, I counted as friends and valued their friendship, as I did their writing. I am become sad when I go to a favourite writer and see 'this profile has been closed,' no explanation; nothing, just gone as if they never were.

Your poem very much brings the loss home.

Beccy.
