Faces In The Dark.


Echoes of sadness resounding all around.

Sometimes I wish for silence, and not a single sound.

Evil stalks every doorway, ever alley and every street.

Is it lurking behind every face that I come across, and meet?

Some people are but shadows, passing silently from sight.

Preferring the darkness to any shade of light.

We all carry sadness but not always is that recognised.

Some hide it well behind a mask of smiling disguise.

Come away from the sadness and the evil that eats away,

Learn to love again, and live a brighter day.

The Desolate Garden.


About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp, ex-London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver never planned to be a writer, but after his first novel —The Desolate Garden — was under a paid option to become a $30 million film for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company what else could he do? Nowadays he is a prolific storyteller, and although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows most about; murders laced by the intrigue involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he compiles both for adults and children. He is the recipient of rave reviews from a prestigious Manhattan publication, been described as —the new Graham Green — by a managerial employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of signing events, and he has appeared on ‘live' television.
