Welcome


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

gaze

I don't know anymore
What is ok
What is permissible
I keep a distance
My immediate response
is visceral
I can't help it
I am lost
I can't function
I'd stare
but to gaze
is much softer
you are too beautiful
for me to be subtle
I remain
confused
I apologize
I get lost
in your eyes
watching you
is ecstasy
Kissing you
would be
some sort of
dream
to be close to you
would be
something like
heavenly
but my thoughts
and feelings
aren't really
that saintly
