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

the corners removed
the walls padded
my mind filled
with drugs to
calm me
to steal from me
my dreams
and sleep
a mask to cover
so that my mouth
cannot scream
a blanket
that ties behind
my body
so that I cannot
harm me
drugs fed
to place a hex
medicines injected
and I wonder
what is this
going to do
