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

Catastrophic cost

My life is mine to spend
And the cost
Of loving you
Was catastrophic
This is not pretend
My faith is lost
By loving you
So very toxic
Your ways
Leave me confused and dazed
Why did you start
What could never be
Why did you break my heart
Making me believe
Showing interest
And then break me
For your seeming pleasure
Oh my God
I can't breathe
Any more
So much pressure
Upon my mind
I am going away
Before I
Drifting, I need to sail
Into the never
You killed this being
It is no suicide
Just insanity
Let me flee
Don't come for me
Let me lay where I die
Losing my hold
Upon my sanity
Hand upon my heart
You on my mind
Let me go
