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

Abides

I haven't been able to think
You've been on my mind
Ever since
Its been forever since you asked
And time doesn't forgive
I haven't cried but I regret my mistake
You asked me if I loved you
I said No and I meant it
But I lied saying it
Despite my sincerity
There is a difference between
Loving someone
And wanting someone
I thought I knew the difference
Apparently I didn't
I guess sometimes lives collide
You can't control them
Not when
Not where
Love takes no prisoners
It just happens
It abides
Time goes on
Love fades
And when you realize
You've failed to speak the truth
It leaves you unsatisfied
Life leaves you hungry
Emptied
And you wish
You could replay
Your life over again
