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

Pinned to a page

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 ^^

I love this poem. I'll often get sad thinking about my friends who've left this site. It's not so much that they're gone (although that's bad too), but more that they left without a trace. This poem captures that feeling perfectly with its analogies. The last couple of lines speak volumes. Great work!

Thank you.
Waving, here... still. People disappeared, some without a word, other's sick of health, others sick of erratic techno usage, different reasons.. often sad. Sometimes tis like the good old days, sometimes not.. it's life..

Truly hope you pop in again and search for old friends who thought you'd gone to the moon. Happy landing, hope you stay. :) Emma

No we aren't...thank you.
you hit the nail on the head with this one. You do have a way with words. I have so many accounts I can't keep up, lol. I basically use WC as a place to back up my poetry, but it is always nice when someone comments on something I have written. I do try to visit others, as it gets more traffic through my profile. Have a great Memorial Day weekend! Great piece!
