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

Storm end

Like a model
Beautifully posed
She didn't move
At all
I was motionless
As well
As she lay
Laying still
Beauty was ashamed
It had never known
Such an elegant form
Her eyes closed
Her lips looked
As a red rose
Minus the thorns
I whispered to her
Asked to join
The dreams
She was having
All I had was nightmares
My nights had only
Major storms
Until she calmed
All of them

Amedeo Modigliani
