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

wishes and dreams
don't me a thing
to love
prayers and schemes
I am breaking at the seams
to hug
Alone and it hurts
and remembering the days
When I could let things go
Or dream things away
But I can't
And I won't
I am alone again
For good
I choke
Upon the words
To escape this
I am sorry
For whatever I did
I am sorry for whatever I said
Now go away
Leave me to cry
I prefer to be dead
Just let me die
Let me go
I want to
