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

Not partners

I never understood the point of view
that led to your thinking
I was unworthy of your love
I was true
I never even dreamed
Of anyone but you
I never imagined
Giving all of myself
To someone who
Never thought once
I was a partner
I am the damned
In your eyes I am staff
A member of your harem
Never being thought
Always tearing
Me apart
Always crushing
My heart
Why did I ever start
When there was never
Anything returning
An echo that was silent
Just release me
You never needed me
