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

Kneeling before you

Let me breathe anew so that there is only you
Inside my chest, let me catch the scent
of your perfume
I long to be in your presence,
to be in your sway
I long to be your treasured,
I long to be so far from here
So far away, with you
You are the light in my eyes
And will never flicker
I am alone without you near
Within a crowd of a thousand people
without you, it is quiet
In my heart without you here
I am desolate
You completed me
Upon the day
And though
I fail, am the perfect flaw
My heart remains
Holding you
You are all
I long for
And without you
I fail
Burning within
I fall upon my knees
Pray to breathe
Exhale the toxins
Inhale you
Exhale my sins
Let your will prevail
In my heart
Upon my knees
I wait for you
