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 Ancient Dead Remain

The corpse adjudged
Without shame
Nor worry
The past flees
Cascade started
Should the spirit be missing
And life is gone
The shadows and mist
Refuse to part
These bones exist
And the ancient dead remain
Before the court
A case presented
Though flesh has parted
The dead live the same
Skeletal remnants of life
Artifacts of existence
Bleached white
The life that is lost
Is a memory
A ghost
Still haunting
Still mourning
The loss
