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

Eternal Winter

Snow flakes flutter in the swirling wind
The cold snatches my breath from within
But I am colder to begin with
Than Jack Frost can imagine
For I am alone on this winter eve
And will be until eternity
An eternal winter
Inside of me
Since she left, went away
Leaving me to wither
In my frozen season
Of sorrow
The pain of her absence
Worse than I can accept
Worse than frost bite or cold
I shiver, so depressed
Nothing can warm me
Nothing could warn me
That winter
Could last forever
