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

Burning tears

Beneath the new sun of the morning
The scars of yesterday might fade
But the tears on my face
Burned anew every night
Will be visible forever
Staining my skin
With salt and trails
Never loved
Never held
In sweet embrace
I’ll exist
And be gone
Without a trace
I am a haunting
I am a grave
Covered with skin
I am empty
I am a vacuum
Filled with sin
There is nothing
But my soul
Painted black
Bleeding sorrow
As with every mood
The dark has control
And there is nothing
To console me
For there is nothing
But the trails of tears
That sting with salt
And water
