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

I know the truth
and with every breath
my soul whispers
that I love you
every portion of my flesh
is broken and blistered
when I experience deja vu
and you say nothing
in reply
such a bitter
the weight of failure
so crushing
so painful
and I should say
goodbye before
I make a fool
of myself
or I should say
a bigger fool
I am regrettably
open hearted
and thereby
