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

bad anniversaries

with hopes unrequited
our screams muffled
we were united
in the war
Our collapse
after years
of the struggle
led us to the same tombs
our will taxed
how could we go on
we shared a womb
shared our sorrow
grieved the same
we were spawn
of our fears
and we feared
because we were broken
with black spirits
with wounds

I miss you Cathy
