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

Your beauty


Your beauty compares
To nature's grace
More lovely than the scent
One catches of jasmine
More beautiful
Is your face
Than the orchids in bloom
And of taste,
Your kisses rival honeysuckle
Before you
I lay prostrate
And aroused
You are complete in perfection
And I am redeemed
After life had condemned me
The stars shine less
Than your eyes
And I long
To dive in them
And be consumed
