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

Walk into the dark

We are told
To be obedient
We are sold
The perfect way
We become
What we endure
We are done
Before we say
Please leave me
Do not think
That you can help
Allow me my sorrow
Allow me my time
I need to grieve
That's all I have
Not the past
Not tomorrow
Nothing works
So let me be
There is no one
Who will save us
From ourselves
We create
Our personal prisons
And we dwell
In our own hell
into the darkness
Knowing I
Am not alone
I have my memories
That never leave
And I will bleed
Into the black
