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

Another black September
With only bitter seeds
Of memory
My life has burned unto ashes
Captive to my senses
Sensory slash and burn
Normalcy is pointless
My life torment continued
All that is left is the embers
I have raped my innocence
Leaving nothing behind
But delicious thoughts
Of suicide
Because the fear of living
Leaves me normal
Slave to my master
Grieving the lost
While serving his whim
Capricious fate
And vicious destiny
Command my legacy
Again and again
