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

dreams of sunshine

Sleeping in the sunshine
Of ever after
In my dreams
Childhood never ends
Warmed inside
By the feeling
When reminded of the joy
One might have had
Before the cost
Became too much
To endure again
So I cried
Not for the pain
But that this place
Would pass away
And the real world
Would replace
My dreams
With fear
And emptiness
