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

The Beautiful Lady Without Mercy

She knew my heart
Hidden behind the chest plate
Her touch was cold and taunting
I was naive to her ways
But I was not afraid
She had beauty that was haunting
Her voice soothed my fears
Her form moved my being
And when I reached for her
She was gone
And I was left
With only tears
Grieving my loss
But was she ever near
