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

preplanning my funeral

Crimson spray
Sharp is the blade
What can I say
Quitting is my game
Soon my vision blurs
Bleeding the devil’s liqueur
I stare in the cracked mirror
And it laughs back at me 
For now I'll lay down
Into the sewer
Until my time is gone
Until I pass
From this 
Stained palace
