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

I am confused


I wait for her signals
And don’t know
Now or never
If we should be together
I treasure her
But does she
I cherish
And feel alone
Doomed
For my ever
With every smile
I am fooled
Every change
In her eyes
Seems so strange
So I assume
I am a fool
And think the worst
Despite reality
Telling me first
Something
Quite different
Instead of a blessing
I beg the curse
That doesn’t exist
Until
I give it life
Every look
Is packed with failure
Or is it
I don’t know
