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

Throw me away

Every instinct
They say change
but my mind
Is broken
With bleeding and pain
Sorrow unspoken
Hunted by rumors
Devastating shame
Hope fleeting
Can't tame the demons
In my mind
Can't keep them chained
I am the one
Giving them freedom
They will escape
Destroying more than me
Everyone I love
Throw me
From this world
Let me die
Without grieving
My pain over
Would be worth
Every sacrifice
Of my flesh
My spirit
Will survive
Throw me away
Allow me
To escape this fate
