Welcome


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

flaming wreck











My throat
empty of noise
Despite screaming
The silence
Deafening
Asleep
Dreaming
No thought
No vision
Mind racing
Down a dead
End street
I
Died
A flaming wreck
Why don't
I just
say
something
anything
before
no one are left
to hear me
is there no one
nothing
to say
worth saying
nothing left
worth praying
knees bleeding
from supplicating
I'm bleeding
From speaking
In tongues
no one knows
what the hell
I am saying
words broken
nothing spoken
for the sake
of it
nothing sacred
I am
an empty painting
forsaken
of my own
design
spill the wine
this vintage
is spoiled
