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 lady, my love, my deadly beauty

absent of malice
without a touch of sin
neither dreaming
nor sleeping
beautiful blue
skeletal and pale
with pencil thin
visible through your skin
no doubt you don't care
when nothing else
exquisite corpse
no longer breathing
spiritless flesh
no longer believing
in the promises
of the grieving
you have
somewhere else
that calls you to be
hanging upon a thread
still beautiful but dead
elegant majesty
no hope for the wicked
delicate blasphemy
magnificently twisted
entropy's path
existence wrath
tears fall upon your face
keep me in your embrace
eternity is short time
well worth the wait
keep you in my mind
for my heart's sake
