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

doesn't matter

it doesn't matter she said
you never cared
he was wordless
he felt dead
but she was wrong
and couldn't know
for his despair
how wrong
she made a career
of running
and she ran from him
far enough away
he could scream
and no one would hear
but he was sure
some day
someone would
and then
the echoes
against the empty walls
would drive him
and that was all
he could handle
without disintegrating
losing his mind
