Love Beneath The Stars. By Danny Kemp

Love Beneath The Stars.

The Star of love spoke to me,
As beneath I walked silently.
Enticing words that gnawed and chewed,
Without my resolve being renewed.

I tried to resist, I knew I should.
I told myself it would be no good.
But did I listen, did I hell.
Into the trap headfirst I fell.

The promise faded, as all must,
When built on feelings of simple lust.
Passion is fickle in its extreme,
Always searching for a younger dream.

Stars cast shadows over all eyes.
That only a fool will try to deny.
Love consumes. It take its toll.
It takes away your very soul.

A Shudder From Heaven, by Danny Kemp

The proposed cover of the forthcoming novel, A Shudder From Heaven.

Practising writing a synopsis for “A Shudder From Heaven,” a task I hate. First attempt.

A Shudder From Heaven is a story of two Spanish Catholic priests, one a Cardinal and the other a novice Jesuit who both commit suicide because of a young, ambitious Italian girl. Teresa Ramos, mother of Alvaro and sister of Cardinal Ramos, sets about taking her revenge for the death of her son and brother, but although her late husband was a police officer, she is far from educated in criminal ways.

The story is not what you may first imagine, with an ending you could never envisage.

People In London, by Danny Kemp

e542881399fdf6ec77455d022c7c7ad8

Vacant faces with no traces,

Of what’s happening inside.

Always rushing never slowing, 

To secret places they glide.


Voices shouting, ears not hearing,

Places sought to hide.

Men are digging, machines are hammering,

Sanity does collide.


City heaving, no one breathing.

No resting place to reside.

Rhythms of a city. Noises without pity.

Take me to the countryside!

A Cockney Boy, by Danny Kemp

A Cockney Boy

I’m thankful I’m a London boy, that’s where I was born, bred and raised.

I’ll stay a London boy until the end of my days.

I don’t want to change a thing, I’m proud of what I am.

I would hate to live a life where all is just a sham.


I had a good education, as I went to a very good school.

I can speak in an upper-class voice, but speech is only a tool.

I look on life in a cheerful way, always trying to smile.

But lately, I have to say, I can only hold that pose for a while!


Now, too many people are pedestrian, with scarcely a thought of their own.

Instead of what’s on their shoulders, there should be a hollow stone.

Platitudes don’t sit well with me, they’re meaningless and banal.

I prefer people with an imaginative mind, who are insightful and have their own style.


London is an ever-changing city, with an ever-changing face.

It can be a challenging scene, if you don’t know your way around the place

Foreign languages are spoken everywhere, unnecessarily rude sometimes it seems to me.

Because I’m just plain speaking man. I’m a cockney boy you see!

The Bare Lonely Soul, by Danny Kemp

10489701_659930497417765_6254409769326178579_n

She had a certain certainty that set alight the industry, and soon she was proclaimed Queen over all that remained.

She could dance, she could sing, she had an angelic voice. People looked on in compulsion, as if they had no choice.

They waited, they stood, they queued for hours and hours. Just to be in her presence and to feel her powers.

Some wanted to own her then rip her apart, to examine the size and nature of such a pure, unspoiled heart.

But had they looked deep into her light blue eyes, they would have seen her pain and understood why she lived such lies.

She was tired, she was ill, she had nothing left, but she had no desire to leave anyone feeling bereft.

Everyday was just a show she put on as she went along, but in truth she was performing her own death song.

When death finally came it hit hard and fast, but you’re lucky that she left you a legacy that will forever last.

Her name now stands for honesty, strength and resolution in despair.

Is there anyone of you who could empty your soul, whilst alone and so bare?
