The Ache

My friend and co-author of The Mystical Hexagram, Gary Vasey, published this beautiful piece on his website today. I asked his permission to share it here. 


This inner longing
It rises sharply
curling, winding, unbending
Seeking, I know not what
Snakelike, uncoiling
My senses boiling
An ache so deep
A need so great
Needing, I know not what

It’s in the trees
It’s in the fields
Its also in the mountains
The hand emerges
Sword held aloft
Ripples form and spread

It’s everywhere I turn
But can’t be reached
It’s all around me
The fires burn and burn
Flickering, twisting
Rising upwards and on

I’m lost in bliss
Sensing laughter – happiness
The aching rises
Seeking, writhing
But not finding
It’s release

Dear Lady take my hand
Lead me where you will
Be my guide, my Mother
Maiden, crone
Ease this ache
Let me know I’m not alone

All is one
It begins
Just to End
An endless return
The eternal Breath

I am a child
I feel alone
I ache to end it
To be reconciled
Cleansed, to rest
Hugged, caressed
One – with the Goddess

  1. Really good image and your words are moving. I understand the ache and you have created it well with your words.

    Don’t show me things like that. ^^ I just try desperately to keep sane because I met a terribly charismatic man last week.
