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

a memory of her love
was the only thing that buoyed
this source of hope
was gone, but her memory
was doomed to the past
there was nothing left
the seconds in the time glass
passing quickly
nothing could lesson her pain
life had left her bereft
but she had memories
and they
were not
