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

Memory Trap

Regret is a trap
And we are all victims
No matter how innocent
We all become snared

Regret doesn't play fair
If we are diligent
We can escape
It isn't permanent
But whatever our desire
We will reenter the trap
Our souls come back
As if we want the pain
We try to be hopeful
Or honest
But we are never strong enough
We are delicate
And will shatter
Under the weight
Of becoming undone
