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

My lack of confidence
Breaking me in half
Pulling at my edges
Until I rip
I whisper that I'm trapped
My brain ignores my senses
I lose my balance and tip
From the highwire
You always watched
As my desire
My destruction
I am a liar
Dying to the applause
Of many
Standing below
