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

Blinding our eyes

Lowered down
Into the cold
Frozen ground
Beneath spades of dirt
The years are covered
To rest, for now, or for eternity
I fell down running
Life gone wrong
Too short my reach
For your embrace
Artlessly, talentlessly
Instead I scream
I long to be one
Next you
Hearts and hands
Waking covered in dew
From the faeries dance
We escape being damned
Thinking ourselves
So very wise
Staring into the sun
Blinding our eyes
But our vision never fades
Because we never look
We only see
We never cry
We only meet
In a spiritual place
Far beyond the reach
Of the demons chasing
But they are never
Never seeking
Never finding
Never a taste
Of your soul
