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

I remain

She was raped
And carried me
Despite hating me
My birth was easy
Compared to the curse
That I was
My life
Was a flooding river
Run well beyond its course
I was a presence
A ghost upon the earth
No one knew why
I bothered to exist
No one bled when I was cut
And I was white from blood loss
I became nothing
Until I faded
And view
I was nude
Still invisible
My soul painted
With the screams
Of innocence
