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

Shards of my heart

There is no evidence
Upon the ground
Or in sight
Only the shattered heart
Left behind
Fallen shards of glass
Of the one chance
To be free inside
But within my closed lips
I hold fast
A secret burns
But without release
I know what you said
Saw what you did
And it gives me no relief
At all
In any way
To know that you feel it
To know that you
Burn inside like me
It doesn't help to know
You are
Without anything
That you can do
