The Dame of Love, by Shabeeh Haider


The door to my heart was closed and locked,
Someone passed by and gently knocked.
The wind of love, it blew inside,
And though I tried, I could not hide.
The door was then flung open wide,
The Dame of Love, she stepped inside.

The heart and mind is your domain,
So is the blood flowing in each vein.
Each breath I take, cries out your name,
Your face has put the moon to shame.
How did you come, when had you knocked?
When was the door to my heart unlocked…?

(From the book, A Vagabond Heart by ShabeehHaider)


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.
