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

I saw a photo in an album
Of you in a moment
Your spirit alight
Your heart unguarded
I remembered it
The time
The voice
The gleam in your eye
Now with you gone
Every moment seems so wasted
That you could be so far away
Never to return, it burns
I miss you, and horror
Is my reaction of you being gone
Since I can't reach you now
Forever I'll miss you
Your leaving still leaves me
I will never again be whole
Your memory is burned
In my heart
And I can never unlearn
The things you taught me
Because they came from
Deep inside your soul
