O God, Who Could Be There - Poem by Charles van Lerberghe
O God, who could be there
In the absence beyond
Who has risen before
Me, from dead dust
And the void?
Oh, speak fast!
Don’t stare at me like that,
In silence! I am afraid;
Don’t stare at me with such eager eyes
My somber sister!
Are you my soul?
Are you my shade?
Whoever you are,
Go away, ghost!
I don’t want to see you anymore…
Oh, my very own angels, help me!
