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 never knew

I knew her when she said
That she cared
And she spat me out
When she stopped
Caring
I never knew what led
To the despair
And the doubt
When Pandora's box
Began tearing
Open
And then
The darkness poured out
Into everyone's life
And it ripped me
Like a knife
In my back
Unstopping
Without caring
I ran unknowing
Into a place
Far away
