I was shocked to see his hubs are all gone. Has he left on his own accord? anyone know, I will miss him.
I read a heart felt poem he left as his last. He said he was going to get smashed for a few months, so something dramatic is going on for sure in his life or did HP cut him?
I'm sure he did nothing to violate TOS.. sad to see someone so talented take his hubs down.
I wish I could have read his poem.
There certainly must be something dramatic going on to take all his hubs out of circulation. I wish he had at least left his last poem.
May be something to do with this? http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/42950
The last post made on that two months old thread is 3 weeks old. I don't see a reason why would someone leave HP for a death in family, especially when after that he has recovered.
I agree, he also just a few days accepted me and Wayne Brown and 50 Calibre as freinds on Facebook and today I see he is no longer on Facebook either or at least he has removed himself from being a friend. I sent an email off to Wayne as they were both bantering funny poems back and forth to each other this past week.
That was the tragic loss of his sister a few weeks ago. He came back after that and wrote lots of hubs, I don't think this is the reason he's gone. After reading his last poem, it was very upsetting and he was swearing a lot in it and saying like they did him in and wished all us hubbers the best and he was going to go get blasted for a few months, so something else has upset him for sure.
I hope he's going to be okay. That doesn't sound too good.
That thread was from two months ago when his sister passed away. I e-mailed him he will always be my bud. I will let you know when I hear from him, but it is truly not like Charlie to completely disappear unless something deeper is transpiring.
You're right saddlerider - he seems to have taken himself off FB too - have mailed him. Hope he's OK!
I'm just hoping for the best - I love that guy, really! Hope to see him back again soon. Actually wanted to go back to his latest posting this morning as I had read it but not commented yet.
Hope he replies to you, AEvans. Plese let us all know.
I just noticed Ralwus gone as I was preparing to add him to my list of favourite HubPages poets. I hope everything's alright and that eventually, when he's worked out his issues, he comes back. Terrible thing about the internet is you care about the people you meet as you care about anyone else, yet they can just vanish on you like they can't in 'real life'.
Just wanted to bump this up--has anyone heard from Charlie yet?
Nope, AEvans is trying to reach him but we haven't heard from her either.
he published a hub today...
There are 3 hubs posted there. Charlie, your postings sadden me. I do hope you're doing ok. Take care of yourself.
yes, the last poem is quite unnerving....
If you read this Ral, know that I've loved your poems, and hope you'll let them live on...
do take care... always x
p.s. please if u can, do watch the movie Society... it's for you.
Same goes for me, too, Charlie...I hope you'll come on here and let us know how you are...
Charlie, I hope you read this! I've searched for your phone number but can't find it. We're very worried about you! If you still have my number, feel free to call if you wish to talk.
We all love you!!
Ralwus! U r back but it's not really you. Sweetie, I hope you have someone to talk your troubles with. Come back to us when you're ready.
I really understand, Charlie. really. love is real and we feel it for ya! love, Meg
I just checked his profile page, too. The wonderful madman has done this before, he chooses to take down his previous stuff and reinvent himself. Now his avatar is a sea creature and he has 3 published hubs. I am still listed as a fan.
I'm pretty sure he's okay and definitely still here.
I looked again, and it's not a sea creature. Something neon, I guess.
OK, Charlie! You're starting to piss me off now! Enough with the dreary poems if you can't tell anyone here anything about your problems! This is making everyone here feel bad! Spit it out, dammit!
Have you noticed that the comment capsules are all turned off on his new stuff?
I think Charlie is a bit of an eccentric. He is probably sitting back sipping his beer scratching his whatever and wondering what all the fuss is about.
i'm so sorry
some people seem to search for sorrow,
i have had it thrust upon me.
some are vengeful with it,
i simply have accepted it as a way.
don't people realize there is
so little time?
and for them to mutilate it
all their life
like that . . .
there is never a way to
i am just so tired of pain,
real pain that feels like
my spleen will explode;
like my back is
is being pounded
by black demons
with hot irons
a rotted heart
that pinches the throat,
that alien on my
the shaking of my bone,
the tremor in my
soul as i try to
feel my way in darkness;
the shortness of
breath that darkens my eye.
now do you understand
would you be angry
with me now?
may i have your blessings to
i will leave you my pomes.
leave me my peace.
Charlie--You got it...all the best to you, but I know you already know that... ~~hugs~~
Best of wishes from all of your friends here on hubpages and elsewhere. Know that your life has touched ours in a special way. Virtual hugs are being sent your way!
hello ralwus. we are not friends but anyway, i hope you feel better. you were always kind to me. i have no adequate words so i will just wish you well.
Charlie, my mind will miss the 'gleeful, creative journey' that your poetic writing always commands; but, my heart sadly understands...
Ralwus, you have Non Hodgkin Lymphoma. I'm so sorry. Of course first things first, take care of yourself. My prayers go with you.
Willing friends can be a burden.
Charlie I hope you find the Peace you are looking for.
I heard from Charlie, he is taken a long overdue break seems he would like to accomplish many things right now and would like to get busy living for awhile.
He sends all of the best!
Charlie God speed my friend and I trust you will find yourself and get on with living and doing what you need to do to survive. I give you a virtual hug and tap on the back with best wishes, you know that we will be here praying for you and welcome you back with open arms when your ready. God bless and peace, now go out there and play and have fun with discovery.
The poems sound far darker than simply wanting to take a break, but I wish him the peace he is craving. I know of the desire to rest and be freed from pain. I wish him the best and hope he stays well and returns to us someday. I respect him a great deal.
I understand the need to take a break from it all.
Charlie, you know I care about you. Please do take care of yourself. We'll all miss you here. Hurry back.
just came - searching forums on "ralwus" after reading his last poem that didn't allow comments. I hope he's just taking a break as is being said here. The last poem seemed to imply something more dark... hopefully it was just poetic for taking a break. A truly gifted man. I do hope he returns soon and is well.
One of the all-time greats for sure.
CC/Ralwus, till our paths cross again,you are in my prayers.
I just got an email from Charlie. Please, HP family, he really needs all our prayers and/or positive thoughts!
Count me among what I'm sure are the many, many, on here, sending thoughts and prayers in his direction.
I hope he can find a perspective that allows him joy and peace and happiness. I wish only the best for this kind and generous soul.
Break the links Randy in your post, or you're just helping him out.
I read his poem - My Great Escape - and right now my heart feels heavy.
We're going to miss you Charlie! All the best and please take care.
Always thinking of you.

I know that this isn't a unique topic to start a new thread but I wanted to ask something different. I want your opinion on what I am going to do.As you probably know that the traffic for many hubbers have significantly dropped to 5%. I am getting 200 to 300 views/day now and 6 days ago, it was...

I joined HubPages 4 months ago for one and only purpose - making money and becoming rich overnight. I thought, "Of course, all I need to do is put some articles out there and money will pour down from everywhere".Fast forward 4 months, I have barely made $2 from those articles. So I...

Is the Hubpages 'Featured Hubs' going to reduce traffic?I'm curious about this. As for my own hubs, many have had to sit idle for 3-6 months, then would start to get great traffic as Google gives respect to older content. Will the fact that search engines can't see our content mean that traffic...
