The Cellar Door

Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be silence...

“We received the following message tied to a stone from the opposite German trenches. —-We’re going to open fire with artillery. We don’t want to do this but we’ve been ordered to. It will come this evening, and we’ll blow a whistle first so you’ll have time to take cover.”

“People who read books in public places are regarded with suspicion because they appear self-sufficient. When you seem self-sufficient, other people think that you think you’re better than them, and they get resentful.”

Madness.

poetrybomb:

I am mad.
I don’t know
when the day ends or starts.

All my friends
are my enemies as well.
I have no love to give
and no time to think.

My soul is empty.
I wonder if some cigars
would make me feel alive.

Lost between lies
and the truth.
Can’t remember what I wanted.

The sirens will come tonight,
maybe they’ll take me
far away from here.

I pray they will.

Bless the hand for what was writ
or bless the mind for its wit
but most of all bless the throbbing heart
from where in its depths, it all did start.
