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

Who I am

If you wanted
Me to be fake
You chose the wrong heart
To break
I can't hide my soul
From you
And I can't be made to lie
It's true
I am who I am
You chose me
So how could you ever say
I was false or I would cheat
How could one ever choose
This one
Yet  hope to have chosen
The other
I might never be yours again
But then
I might not have been
The entire time
If you think I could say
And not believe
Or to lie
And try to see
If it worked
Because I am
Who I am
And I love you
Even if
You don't
Share the view
Even if you don't know
Who I am
I do
