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

I love this image, Tim!
Along with your penned words on how this is sad to lose members to silence here.

You are very welcome. It is a beautiful poem.
It's hard when a site goes through a harsh transition. When people pit one against the other and motives are lost on vacant minds. I miss the old days...but not the pain and hatred... xo
