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

so silently

I don't breathe
I bleed
I don't talk
I scream
But silently
So quietly
The world slowly
But surely
Grinds my flesh
With my joy
Leaving me
Please don't stop
Believing me
It takes me
And destroys
All of who
I am
I don't sleep
I dream
I don't cry
I burn
In fire it comes
A storm is near
When he returns
The battle is here
The mist rises up
The view is unclear
I might die tonight
But I have no fear
