I am a poet who has both been published and self published. All work on this blog is all copyright Alex Ness. While I make very little money from my work I am technically a professional. Measuring by the hours I've written I am professional. My goal is to share my work with as many people that can read it, as far as the internet may reach with it. I hope if you are moved you will share this blog with others, and perhaps buy my books.

Whatever the result, thank you for viewing this blog. I cannot express how greatly I appreciate the many people, from many places upon the earth, who have visited.

I bid you peace.

Je ne regrette pas la douleur, car il m'a fait plus forte

my heart will still say I love you

there is nothing left in my heart
from where you began
nothing worth having at all
I wish that you didn’t even start
you know what you did
knowing it was the end
For me that last drink with you
was like drinking poison
because I’d rather have died
than to ever see you cry
breathing you out and in
was all I wanted to do
to be with you
but you didn’t last
couldn't see past the dreams I had
that we’d be together
never stopped loving you
its true
and if you need proof
that I was true to you
even in the end
look at that heart in your hands
it was mine
it might even shed a few beats
now and again
with a sigh
it will say
I love you
in every beat,
every breath I take
because I do
still I do
