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 Games

Taken in by her words
By her face and by
Her body so perfect
Never thinking
I was the next in a train
Of men to play
Musical chairs of love
I wasn't able to detect
The secret she had used
To trap me and then
Release me
I never knew what hit me
Never stopped to think
How lucky I was
Who wants to be
She was beautiful
But treated men
Like trophies
From the hunt
But she spat me out
After a taste
Then let me go
Will my face
Be upon her wall
Or was I rejected?
I don't know
I don't care
