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

Through Fire

When you asked me
To stand up next to you
And take your hand
I did
I was humbled
When you asked me
To walk through fire
For you
I did
I was burned
But I'd still do both again
For my love for you
Is a flame
Cannot be tamed
Grows steadily
Repeatedly reminding
How much you mean to me
And how lost I’d be
Without you
When you asked if
I'd stand before the judge
And take the punishment
Meant for you
I did
There is nothing I would not do
Because I love you
I walk through fire daily
For you
My heart is true
Clarity of purpose
I know my heart
Is so full of you
I cannot ever
Escape from my desire
To be with you
I walk through fire
