A Thirst.

A Thirst.

The excitement was overwhelming, I was losing my grip.
I was clinging to a precipice with my feet about to slip.

The tension was immense, my head was swirling around.
I had to get away from there and reach solid ground.

The air became oppressive, my breathing was cut short.
There had to be an end to it. One of us had to call a halt.

The atmosphere was electric. We both felt it. It was hell!
If we hadn’t pulled together, one of us would have cried out in an earth shattering yell.

There was no other way than to admit it, but who would confess first?
It was I! I cried LOVE loudly. Living my life since in an unquenchable thirst.

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.
