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

My broken body and flaws

All my life
I burned
To avoid
The burn afterward
And now
After waiting
For so long
I am undone
By the truth
Of my fears
I am gone
Flesh fades
A masquerade
A facade
And proof
Of life
My voice
Is blowing
As dust
Carried upon the wind
By the whims
of the Gods
How long
Shall I be
From my self
How long
Shall I believe
In hope
Despite my flaws
My tears become
A flood
Am I the flaw
Being redeemed
By the sacrifice
God please
Receive me
Covered as I am
With the blood
Of your son
