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

Bring upon us, the flood

Although existence is truth
There is the eternal
There is the finite
And I am tween the two
I am a clay construct
Made of flesh and spark
I am condemned to earth
To abide in my existence
With tempered beast
Primal core
Tribal fears
I am at once
Decay’s feast
For upon me
When I am lost of spark
The worms shall dine
Until I am gone
My remains shall fade
But my soul
Will become divine
Redeemed of my pain
By holy blood
A single tear enters the ocean
Causing a major flood
We become one
With eternity
In the end
And eternity
Is just begun
