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.

My Heart is Yours

I knew I loved you
Long before you knew
When my heart broke
I still stayed true
You were my dream
My only hope
When I'd sleep
You'd hold me close
At least while I was dreaming
I was never able to be
Anything but yours
A chain of love
Held me tight inside
You were all my mind could see
And you still are
The one I love
And always will
Because I can
Because my soul
Sought more than I could know
And here I am an old man
With an old heart
Ready still
For your love to heal
