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

My promise

Everybody acts
Like everything is fine
But I'm not them
They aren't me
This moment is torment
I've been waiting for the time
When God would send me
To redeem my dreams
Your voice is an anthem
You heart beat chimes
My hope is a choir
And I wait until
You turn my head
And Call my name
Because until you return
I burn inside
I believe
Your face
Your scent
Your voice
Your being
Are love divine
You are my promise
Of heaven
