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.

Begging you

Sometimes when I fall apart
I cry and it feels like I am losing
Every vestige of my sanity
God please grant me mercy
For my failed flesh so dirty
And my falsely treasured vanity
My ego destroys faith
I am needing to know
What else I can do
I want to be clean again
Because I can't remain
In the place where I am
It is one of brokenness
And so much sorrow
I have nothing to gain
By holding on
I have nothing to lose
By giving in
I want only to shed
The sin inside me
Beneath my bone
Beneath this skin a heart beats
I am fragile
Dying by the breath
Begging to find love
And asking not to die alone
With no hope
Or reason
For the journey
