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

Told that it isn't alive

We are told that it isn't alive
We should feel no emotion
Over a piece of flesh
It is not the whole
Just a part of the puzzle
Disconnected Rejected 
Corpora mortuorum: et circumdabunt nos
Ecce vide corpora tam pulchram mortem pose
We choose the easy way
Not the hard
Because of the moment
An unwanted consequence
It was coincidence
Or a random chance
From an emotion or urge
Called passion
A pool of blood, a society's wrath
And we called it a different word
To avoid the responsibility
But it doesn't work
Like that
It does not work
Like that
