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

Without warning
You tore at my
Like a beast gorging
Upon my body
And now
I lay bleeding to death
Emptied of all life
Gray turns the flesh
As my chest lays still
Broken heart unbeating
Lungs without breath
Sorrow coursing
Through me
Leaving nothing
For the future
But wrath
And hunger
For healing
