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

Isola dei Morti

Metamorphosis begun
The cocoon broken
The shell lost
They lived now they do not
None who visit ever depart
But they do not seek to return
Their journey is complete
The silent epitaph is mourning
Solitude amongst the passed
The journey's end
The quiet peaceful path
The dead sleep without dream
Forgetting the sorrows of their day
All those who enter escape the wrath
Found in the hellish fires of existence
