Welcome


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

My life released

I loved you
but you
tried to
live my life
make my decisions
as if you could
I asked
and asked
then begged
For you to give
my life back
From your
clenched
white hands
and you never
did
because you couldn't
you wouldn't
it would kill you
almost a form of
suicide
you couldn't do
what that would do
and you could not see
that it was true
that you could not
control another life
no matter
how hard you tried
