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

Chalice of Blood

With this cup
Please join me
In my decay
In my fall
From the throne
Biting my lip
Trying not cry
You have never known
The reasons for my collapse
Before me a cup of blood I sip
For I am dead but have never died
My heart is a slave owned
By the vagaries of circumstance
My hunger never ceases
Stare in my eyes
And feel me in your bones
So many millennia elapse
Time is ceaseless
While I refuse to die
