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

To reach a place
Where to take a breath
Leaves me disgusted with myself
As I walk through the valley
Of the shadow of death
I stumble, and fall
Crumble and cry
I am sleepwalking through life
Because I long to dream
For you are there
When I finally sleep
You are my love
If not here
Life offers nothing
Without you
So I prefer
To dream of you
Where you are proof
Of something that is worth
Empty in life
Fulfilled in dreams
Without you
There is only living
Without hope
Animated flesh
