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

Losing Faith



If you loved me you’d never leave and
If you had faith you’d never stop
Believing in me

I’ve never been able to not love you
I don’t believe in fables
I don’t believe in myth
I just linger in the echoes
Of the promise of your kiss
When you and I embraced

Take my hand
Take my hand
Let me love you

When at last I saw your face
I found my reason to exist
My faith renewed
For here you were in the flesh
Before me and I could taste
Your lips upon mine

Take my hand
Take my hand
Let me love you

And time after time
I recalled the moment
Kept in my heart
Never letting go
Remembering it
For safe keeping

And then you let me go
After I was exposed to the need
I was crushed and remain so
By the fall from your grace
Lose it all, I lost it all

If you loved me you’d never leave and
If you had faith you’d never stop
Believing in me
