Welcome


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

nothing to hold



the devastating ennui of existence
when you realize it is all nuance and naivety
nobody knows anything, not reality
especially
God pour down mercy and grace
for there is nothing here I can embrace
it is torture, knowing but unable
dissonance in this lonely existence
my resistance is untenable
blue skies above
gray clouds below
why am I here
in this obsidian hole
why am I here
infinite in depth
yet no room to grow
I surrender all
yet have nothing to hold
