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

Shadow of the Moon

Inside my body
Is an evil I can't purge
Burning inside is fury
Unleashed and boiling
Coiled I wait to launch
Lurk in the shadows
Catch one unaware
Every time, at this time
Every cycle of the month
My transformation complete
I am going mad from thirst
Upon sight of the flesh
I will tear them
And feed my hunger
Suck the blood and feast
Because every time every cycle ended
Means I become a beast
In the shadow of the moon
My thirst for blood is endless
I stalk my prey without prejudice
The scent upon the wind is pleasing
My stomach is going to be full
