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 long for you

In the absence of light
I cannot find
Where you are
Your form is near me
As we meet in the night
My hands reach,
But you are too far
From my arms
The rhythm of your breathing
Tells me what I need
In your presence
I am alive
My defenses disarmed
Your beauty is unique
Your mind is glorious
Your lips are what I seek
First and foremost
Your flesh is warm
I am cold
We are dynamic
And our love is new
We both want more
In the darkness
Our hands reach the other
Moved by your beauty
I am awakened
To your charms
Hold me
Kiss me
Please do not
Resist me
I long for you
And only you
In this dance
We perform
