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

My confession

Over and over
I confess
My heart is crushed
Bleeding and red
Hidden behind an abscess
I have nothing left inside
But the insanity
I am obsessed
Hidden behind a mask
My eyes the sole entry point
Behold the stories
Generously shared with you
I am unwilling to be broken
For your enjoyment
Not any more
That is something
You must never ask
No matter your viewpoint
I promise to be true
I will speak the words unspoken
No matter what you are asking
I promise not to say I love you
Unless you force it out
By looking
By passing  by
