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

Your love is an artifact
Of the time when we
Were in eternal embrace
Tied in constant dance

Beauty wrapped in lace

Memories are residue
Of the emotions
That accompanied our love
Alive, our love was true

A taste of Heaven above

Shadows flee, bones remain
From our existence
When we were together
Running through the flames

Children lost in forever

Remnants can be found
Wherever we roamed
Of the love we shared
Chains broke, love unbound

Joy destroying despair

“Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.”  Bruce Lee
