Empty rooms in empty halls.

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 ^^

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!

Sounds good. I'll think about it when I have the time.
off and on I too go missing. It feels like no one is here anymore. I try and write every day but the hectic ways of every day gets to me. This is quite intriguing. Enjoyed reading this
