Welcome


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

sands and time



Relentless
The seconds go by
Lost to our touch
Inexorable
They flee so quickly
Forever they go
Time marches
Continuously
Without forgiveness
Without reuse
Seconds of time
Scream
Are like grains of sand
Flowing and fleeting
Far beyond our reach
And their passing
Leaves us
Older
Aged
Vanquished
Defeated
Until there is no time
