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

Love Unto Exhaustion

Loving someone means walking against the storm winds
Life doesn't give you a break because you love
Instead, we have to push on whatever the cost
Or the fire of love is extinguished
And all you face is loss
Love is a commitment to another
Whatever the wages you have to pay
Love means you surrender
To their needs because you care
Until you break
