Passion lived inside a heart now sadly empty and grey.

Optimism strode forward, begging it to stay.

A trace of lust had remained, but seldom had been viewed.

It fought for its life and slowly, passion was renewed.

It flowed, then raced, gathering pace, bursting onto the scene.

The like of which was remarked upon. “This has never been seen!”

It survived for just a short span of life, but into which it breathed,

A pure sense of love which before could never have been conceived.

Anything But Hackneyed.

Anything But Hackneyed.



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.
