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

Sinking Feelings

Waiting for the call that never will arrive
Waiting for some small hope to survive
Lips turning gray
I cannot exist upon some small hope
I resist the lure, that something will happen
That can keep me afloat
I am sinking into the depths
Of the darkness that calls me
It embraces me fully
While my memories haunt me
There is nothing I can do
To keep from falling now
There are costs that are due
That life won’t allow me to pay
Lips turning gray
Floating in the morass
I’ll be there to stay
