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

Yes, You move me

You told me not to believe
And I acquiesced
For a short while
I let my hormones rule
But I was empty
After a short run
What is the point of love
Without hope
What is the point of being
Without dreams
Why be together
If all you want is sex
To me that is rather bestial
And not how I behave
Love is so much more complex
I don't understand
Why I accepted what you said
Why I acquiesced
Why I chose to be less
But I know that love is what I want
And after I reflect
If it isn't here
With all due respect
I'll be going
No matter how much
Your beauty moves me
No matter if you are in my dreams
If I am not going to love
I'd rather have nothing
