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

The mists of my mind are heavy
With sorrow and fear
Deep in the recesses
The miseries of the dreaming
There rides a horse
A nightmare
The fear unrelenting
It pursued me
Without pause
To the morning
Of my mourning
For there is no where to run
My sleep is cursed
The waking
No relief
I fear sleep
Where the horse rides
It will chase me down
Taking me from this place
Stealing me
To the realm of death
Where Hades reigns
And wears a hellish crown
