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

asylum ideas

the spit mask leaves me silent
and I am without words
the devastation appears
I have no hope or dreams
in this dark asylum
my world is a square
with padded walls
for my safety
my mind cannot stop
exploring my sanity
only I know if I am crazy
but they do not care to listen
so speaking is not the issue
someday I will get out
and remove all doubt
all doubt
all doubt
