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

never met

He sighed
Lifting his face from the paper
He said 
I am sad we never met 
I would be her savior
Such a lovely woman
So lovely a soul
Had I ever known her
he said with soft tones
I'd have shown her
How to live
How to love
Without wearing the mask
Without hiding as told
I'd save her from the ones
Casting curses and stones
I would never let her go
But I had to watch
From a distance
As she chose a life
I could never live
She never was willing
To lose her control
I hope she forgives me
Because it is too late
For me to escape my fate
Looking at life with vertigo
