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

The Chase

I ran from her and could not escape
she pursued as if I was her prey
across the snow my footing slipped
her path never wavered or dipped
I stared her down in her approach
in her eyes there was no recognition
that I could see but for that of hunger
she seemed to be there solely for acquisition
of my heart, or soul, or love, of my whole
only my exhaustion
led to my being taken by her pursuit
I wasn't dead, yet
but she was hard after me in chase
I lost control
And I linger in regret
