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

SOMNAMBULISM

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
There
If not here
Life offers nothing
Without you
So I prefer
To dream of you
Where you are proof
Of something that is worth
Living
Empty in life
Fulfilled in dreams
Without you
There is only living
Walking
Without hope
Animated flesh
Somnambulism
