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 ^^

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

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

Well said, thank you.
I have been a member for 4 years and i come and go i must admit, there are always issues with cliques and nastiness on this site. I have come back this time and many old friends have left sadly :(

let's see how it goes ..
