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

I fall before the Grail

The depths of my failings
Go far beyond simple sin
I am unable to remove 
The flaw
For my failing covers
I am unable to stop
I am unable to slow
My descent
I am only able
To perform dissection
For my wounds
Cleanse me
My life
My faith
My sorrows
Wound me
I grieve my imperfection
I have failed
My God
My King
My self
But I strive forward
And repent
My resurrection
Will come
When I die
In the service
Of my King
My brother Arthur
And God
