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

Barbed Wired

Walls high and fortified
Wires barbed
And razor sharp
You never let anyone get close
To your heart or soul
With heavy weapons or words
Land mines and watchdogs
Sentries posted everywhere
You never gave a damn who got hurt
Over angry dialogues or when you loved
So long as you got away
To love again another day
