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 of 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 ^^

you are welcome relic
I love this and its comparisons. Very true and creative. This style reminds me of Jacob's. I hate to see writers leave but life goes on. Some of them come back and the family embraces them back.

Oh Man this was totally me until last week. I lost myself to the bustle of a hectic life. Dusting off those poems and bringing a new shine. :) Nice poem.

I often wonder where the disappeared have gone. Your lines,
while messages of forgotten friends
go unanswered
