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

how many angels

how many angels
crashed to earth
falling through the aether
wings burned
because of me
because of my being
such a vulgar sack of meat
I was given this world
and I used it
For my pleasure
A world of treasure
For my lust
And leisure
An exquisite orb
beautiful and unique
sacrificed for my sins
how it paid
my screams absorbed
into the depths
now lost
echoes and reminds
me of my folly
