Alexander Bentley is a wordsmith, inkslinger, poet.
He started posting his poems online in 2014, first on Tumblr and then shifted to Instagram when he discovered typed quotes from R.M. Drake. Alexander now ranks as one of the top poets on Facebook, alongside Rupi Kaur, Lang Leav, Pierre Alex Jeanty, and the poet who inspired him to post on social media in the first place.
Since that time, Alexander has published 4 books, including The Raven Redux & Other Poems, Eversleep: The Beauty of Dark Silence, and A Poet's Manifesto.
Alexander’s body of work touches most commonly on themes of death and loss, depression and heartbreak, life and hope, but most importantly: love.
Since he started dating his Filipina girlfriend Jesa in 2019, Alexander has been very vocal about their relationship on social media. Which has helped him find new audiences for his poetry while encouraging people from different cultures and all walks of life to embrace the love inside their hearts.
