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

Torch Turned Upside Down

Though the torch is turned
Upside down
And life is extinguished for now
The angel of death victorious
Does not celebrate
She weeps
For another opportunity to succeed
Drowned in the failures of flesh
Another life sent off to dream
And sleep
While a new life draws first breath
