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

By my own hand

I am guilty of deicide
By my hand
The lamb was slain
I pounded each nail
I speared his side
And now
Comes the black rain
The innocent always pays for the guilty
The white wool sprayed red by the hand
Of the one covered in sin
Only God knows the darkness within
Why should I be spared when I in despair
Selfishly pray to be remade
I am a fool and coward
I refused my fate
And the world devoured
All I am
All I ever could be
