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

I am begging

I begged you
please just try
but you wouldn't
couldn't
and simply sighed
saying why would you
the entire time
I was praying to be
released
from the jail
your love puts me in
Just let me go
I can't escape
on my own
just let me go
so I might die
another day
so I might fly
another way
but I sit here now
in my throes
of the silence
of the absence
of the refusal
to love
that you have woven
with the promise
of never leaving
break me
make me what you want
instead
you leave me
untouched
unloved
unwanted
as good as dead
