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.

throw me into the ocean

How many times
did you answer
when I begged
for you to be clear
Instead of clarity
Life just went faster
and hammer blow
after hammer
kept the fear
of unanswered prayers
driving me to madness
lucid thoughts lost
madness approaching
life has such a high cost
it is as though
I enjoy the insanity
but I instead
I should be dead or
tossed to the ocean
of sorrow
and join
the unwashed
so many times
I have fallen
clarity not
I am left to rot
in my cave
of insularity
waves crashing
upon me
