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 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 ^^

It's possible. Thank you.
Good you wrote this.
I was once a victim of this piece of writing. Leaving my account in desolation for years, never remember to come back, until its memory struck my memory, and ran back to open its door again, cleaning the room, dusting its furniture, resetting the entity and now I keep maintaining its useful. A home where I feel free to free my feelings.

Good to hear that, Kay. Thanks for reading.
Wow! How descriptive! Mine is one of the empty rooms in one of the many empty halls...:( But, you have summoned me back to sit and read a moment, like a visiting ghostwriter, still penning in the other world, always true to my nature.

How wonderful your poem is. Each line hits with hollow, reverberating truth, a guilty but intriguing life-giving death knell that intones "Where are you? You are not forgotten. Come back, if only for a moment. You are not forgotten. It is not too late. Please don't die away, for good..."

It's good to see an old friend drop by. The site seems void of them. I hope you're well?
wow I guess one day that will be me too. Very sad... but you painted it a perfection! like the lines penned by so many others that died in obscurity those words quieted but floating in the ether waiting to be found again in someones mind a spirit whisper billowing to your hand beckoning to compose. liked this one a lot awesome imagery and feel

I appreciate the review, Robert. Thank you.
Your poem captures the feeling I have coming back from a long absence. The ones I interacted with are gone, for one reason or another. Well done!
