If I Had A Soul That Was Alive, Your Presence Would Fill It And Give Me Hope.



A star burst in the night sky. 

The sparkling dust entered your heart,

And settled there.

Allowing you to dream of making a new start.

A wave burst onto a stoney shore.

It swept all before it, and cleansed your heart.

Leaving room for love once more

A fire started to burn away the misery

That had locked your heart,

Leaving only emptiness to remain.

It warmed every tissue that it found,

And at last it wiped away the pain.

A thunderous wind blew my name into your mind.

It filled your every thought.

Turning your attention to anything else; blind!

All this is but a dream, but If I had a soul that was alive,

Your presence would fill it and give me hope.

Despair now is my partner.

Wherever you are, I trust that love survives.

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.
