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

the spin continues

This world fears and spins still
Life continues and ignores
Sorrow spills
Your heart is a closed door
You can't take more
But the rest of us
Knowing there is no justice
Fell off the wheel
And enter nil
Black hole
Of oblivion
Obsidian door way
To feeling nothing
We might sleep and heal
Despite having no control
Of our future
Or even our present
Nothing is certain
No goals
No failures
Just knowing
My sin within
My light is darkened
And without hope I swim
In the waters of time
Without knowing
Where it leads
Or where the path ends
