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

Between flesh and spirit

I need something more
something that can move me
something that will stir me inside
because I am empty and waiting
and I cannot stand what I am seeing
tempted by the fruits of pleasure
but finding it boring to my mind
what is the point of being
not gathering treasure
not finding a lover who is better
at some sexual gyration
or tête-à-tête with someone clever
or learn some pointless human thoughts
that take us deep into the heart of the nethers
in the end
I will be measured
by my love
not the detours from my journey
due to my love of the flesh
despite the winding of the path
I resist the desecrations
of my body for the joy of everyone
that lead only to wrath
