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

All my waking life
And my pathetic awareness
Of simply being
I was passion's slave
A victim of my own hand
And desires unnatural
Causing inner strife
And unchained demons
Unleashed from the prison
I run as if I damned
Because I know how they tempt
And that no one will save
I don't recognize reason
As your beauty commands
Me to come
Serve at your feet
Kiss your ring
Desire your touch
But I linger in the thought
I hold you in contempt
I know I can't resist
Your desire to make me bend
Forever in misery
Condemn me to history
And I remain
Just your slave
And I hate
That I have no say
In my destruction
And decay
