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

Light within that Darkness

You called my name in the night
And I heard you
Very clearly
I answered without a thought
For I love you
You are dear to me
Let thine darkness be wrought
For I accept it
Let thine light be abundant
For I can see

I am only a child in your arms
I am ancient beyond my years
The scars upon my body
Branded from the harm I suffered
And the tears
But now, that I am safe
I can see the sun
I know you are near
Hold me
That is all I desire from you
Know me
And I will be true
For the rest of my days
