I killed someone once. I know I did because I used to wake screaming with no sounds coming, to justify what I’d done.

I killed someone once. I don’t want to remember her name, but I do and I don’t like what I have become.

I killed someone once. Her body still lives, but from that day on she sung only sad songs of misery and despair.

I killed someone once. I am a murderer. I stand accused, stock still pleading guilty, as I declare.

I killed someone once. “Tell me you love me.” Was all that she asked, but I couldn’t. I couldn’t even lie.

I killed someone once. I could have said, “yes, I love you, and always will,” but I didn’t. Why?

I killed someone once, but it was not her; it was I.

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 in May 2018 his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? became a number one bestseller on four separate Amazon sites: America, UK, Canada and Australia. Although it’s true to say that he mainly concentrates on what he knows best; murders laced by the mystery involving spies, his diverse experience of life shows in the short stories he writes, namely: Why? A Complicated Love, and the intriguing story titled The Story That Had No Beginning. 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 in the UK.
