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

burnt to ashes

who are you to keep screaming at me
I am not yours to belittle and command
you once said we were a couple
but now there is only
arguments and demands
without any reward
or kindness
I have only memories of who you were
the person who I fell for is gone
and that failure burns to my core
loving you requires blindness
and for me to demur
even when you're wrong
and I can't any longer
not any longer
