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

never said I should stay
you just spoke to me
by your actions
they speak in their own way
you never asked me my desire
instead you spent the time
assuming I wanted
to transform
You wanted magic
to transpire
my soul cried out
by doing everything for you
my life would be yours
my heart paid for
my soul be devoted
without question or doubt
but you never bothered
to lay claim to my heart
my pride doesn't matter
but I cannot live
without love
without a covenant enshrouding
while you dither
over love attachments
cowing me
to obey
