"Oh God"

"Whosoever sees me, needs to be blind not to notice that I'm so happy, so that I can't be truly happy at all" -Rahel Varnhagen.

Else Lasker-Schueler, unpublished poem

"Oh God, I am so tired
From eyelid to eyelid
My thoughts are so lost a float.
And I am not where I am,
The melody in the etude,
A quiescent blue in my mind -
Seizeth Thou from me all gains
And come peace already once.
