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

kept hidden

We know
He was a royal
With all due care
His flesh was supple
Kept in pristine perfection
Yet the soul has fled
The organs are fresh
Despite the veins fully bled
His royal demeanor
Clearly evident
In his state
Prepared for the afterlife
Surrounded by slaves
And willing servents
All dead
He was ready
To ascend
To the sky of Aten and Ra
His body remained
But the spirit
Long since had left
