This Ache

Must I bear this ache,
This soft and constant yearning,
That fills my heart and soul,
With a slow and steady burning?

I can't say what it is,
There's nothing that I need,
But still I feel this want,
This longing deep in me.

No matter where I turn
To fill the empty spots,
Nothing seems to satisfy
Or untie all the knots.

I want to be happy,
or maybe just content,
To feel an easing in my soul,
To live with pure intent.

Please take the ache away,
Just make it disappear,
Replace the hurt with peace,
Let comfort draw me near.

All my life, my heart has yearned for a thing I cannot name.
  -Andre Breton

  1. This was my favorite part of this poem:
    Nothing seems to satisfy
    Or untie all the knots
