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

View from inside

Let me out
Abandon me
Don't call me
My existence a malevolent tumor
My hope remains
An insensitive rumor
My heart is long since broken
I’ve given up hope
My soul is a token
Of the wars over my being
For I’d rather be gone
But they insist upon seeing
If this drug or that
Can remind me of why
I should ever wish to stay
But drugs cannot
Nor can the shocks
The icepick won’t help
I will still have these thoughts
Because they are the real me
And the people outside
Long for me to lie
Let me die
Let me die
Say I am sorry
To those who will cry
I long to be so far away
My mind is my comfort
And my flesh betrays
All I am
All I am
all I am
