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

In your prison

I tried
I tried to refuse
To be hurt and not to cry
But you are responsible
You never knew what you did
When you shut that door
And I
Never saw why
You could walk away
Without seeing
How I never would
Have said what you think
You say that I said
And now you are gone
Sending me letters
Saying you wish I
Never had said that
And I
Never did
It makes me wish I were dead
To be judged for a crime
I never would commit
To pay the cost
And serve the time
When I wasn't a criminal
And never would have been
What a shame
What a shame
And I am left
In the dark
To survive
