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

Grotesque protest

Who cares about tenderness
When everything turns
So quickly to hatred
And then bitter silence
Over words not thoughts
And ideas not actions
Unkind moments
Grotesque protests
Over things
Things we don't understand
In the others
Where we sail
Into the unknown
Dreams inside
Keep us apart
Leaving our hearts
Cold and cyanide
Towards the other
The sins smother
Every hope I have
Of knowing why
I go on
Without you
By my side
