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

The Bleeding Walls

Some walls are meant to keep those within safe
Others are meant to keep the lesser men outside
Away from the elite within
But the highest walls
Sins within the heart escape
The damage shatters all inside
Breaking free from my original sin
Deep perdition calls
To the walls
My fire is burning
My soul is black smoke and hollow
And the prison is the least of my sorrow
For the destination is the journey
And the path is the key
I will freeze before the gates
And burn within
Thirsty from the fire
Dirty from my sin
