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

just let me go

you are not my mother
yes I know
I have it
the signs all showed
my problem was found
I am an addict
of everything I touch and want
wash me and I am covered
moments later
I cannot resist it, in fact, I dive in
So leave me
I will not recover
But it is my life
Let me have it
There is no safe haven
So just let me go
I can die on my own
