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

Love is everything

It is the subject for which they sing
I've been told to believe
That love is everything
Omnia Vincit Amor
That it heals wounds
That it is heaven's door
And I can't live without it
But what about the people
Who have nothing
What about the hearts torn
What about those who are worn
From the battles of love
And refuse to fight
Any more
Love is beautiful
But the absence
The cost
Is a boulder crushing the life
From your frame
And you are left
Love is everything
Both in the having
And the loss
