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

Lavish my soul with misery

My history
Is unhidden
Yet I linger
Sorrow's darkness
Darkens infinitely
This plague of misery
A relentless sadness
Ubiquitous madness
Song of the undying man
Life is no mystery
The truth does not set you free
Only the release from flesh
Might free me
Crossing into the nether
Where answers hide
From those who burn
In vain
They fail
For they are unworthy
I pray this is my final breath
Heaven does not wait
For the wicked
And I cannot
Go on
