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

Distant in my slumber

As a child
I walked everywhere
Regardless of the season
Or reason

The harsh wind bit fiercely
The cold spread throughout
My body was as a kite
Pushed severely
Into the sky

Winter was not my enemy
But it was stark
Allowing insight
In memory

Though oppressive cold doesn't break you
Surrounding you in a malaise
I shivered with discomfort
As I walked to my heartache
Distant in my slumber
