Welcome


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

From the Darkness I was Condemned

I was a slave
To the world
A slave in the pits
From the darkness
I was condemned
My heart would implode
From the grieving
For my loss
Still no difference
From here to then
But time has not slowed
I screamed again and again
No one stopped to save me
Because
They were grieving too
Insular and wounded
We bleed alone
With no redemption
We bleed alone
With no hope
We bleed alone
Until
We are held
And given the promise
That we will no longer
Be broken
Our hearts will again
Be soft and open
Forgiving
Forgiven
Covered in the blood
Of the perfect lamb
Let the gates be opened
Let my heart be opened
And then welcome the flood
