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

No I can't

You asked
But no I can't
You are so very beautiful
But I am so not
My heart can't take rejection
I need a love without tears
You take me through the crucible
With every word you speak
I can barely create thoughts
when you are near
I feel like I'll break
Filled with doubt
When I think of you
I surrender
I am unarmed
I can't fight my way out
So please don't come here
I am broken
My world can't take any more
