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 ^^

Fantastic imagery. I really like the way you make abstract ideas exist as tangible things ("verbs sway on rusted hinges"). I like this poem a lot.

I just loved this piece and relate to it so well. I've been here 5 years. The best way to enjoy WC is to stay focused on poetry and detached from everything else happening that's not about writing. True, we get waylaid sometimes but its best to shake off the dust and keep walking. Wish WC was more technically upgraded though as at times the website still behaves like its 20 years old! Thank you for this write.

You are most welcome. It was an interesting write.
I find this so poignant today. The few have silenced the voices of the many. I for one refuse to let that cloud my day. Apropos to me that you added this on my birthday lol We"ll all be back someday

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.
