Move On Baby, by Danny Kemp


I want to pick the flowers and taste the rain,
Forget this world and be happy again.
I need to forget you and set myself free.
Step away from this nightmare and find the real me.

Love is not always what it seems,
Maybe it existed only in my dreams.
But my dream crashed without a sound
Just like a bubble as it hit the ground.

I want to feel the sun breaking through the sky.
I don’t want to sit here with the tears that I cry.
I need to feel the warmth of a tender touch.
I want that pleasure that you gave so much.

Love is not always what it seems,
Maybe it existed only in my dreams.
But my dream crashed without a sound
Just like a bubble as it hit the ground.

If you’ve found love, then make sure it’s true,
Don’t be like me and let it lie to you.
Never fall in love just for love’s sake.
You owe it to yourself not to make that mistake.

Love is not always what it seems,
Maybe it existed only in my dreams.
But my dream crashed without a sound
Just like a bubble as it hit the ground.

It’s move on time baby, that’s what I must do,
Far away and removed from you!

About Daniel Kemp

Daniel Kemp’s introduction to the world of espionage and mystery happened at an early age when his father was employed by the War Office in Whitehall, London, at the end of WWII. However, it wasn’t until after his father died that he showed any interest in anything other than himself! On leaving academia he took on many roles in his working life: a London police officer, mini-cab business owner, pub tenant and licensed London taxi driver, but never did he plan to become a writer. Nevertheless, after a road traffic accident left him suffering from PTSD and effectively—out of paid work for four years, he wrote and self-published his first novel —The Desolate Garden. Within three months of publication, that book was under a paid option to become a $30 million film. The option lasted for five years until distribution became an insurmountable problem for the production company. All seven of his novels are now published by Creativia with the seventh—The Widow’s Son, completing a three book series alongside: What Happened In Vienna, Jack? and Once I Was A Soldier. Under the Creativia publishing banner, The Desolate Garden went on to become a bestselling novel in World and Russian Literature in 2017. The following year, in May 2018, his book What Happened In Vienna, Jack? was 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 most about; 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 and described as—the new Graham Green—by a highly placed employee of Waterstones Books, for whom he did a countrywide tour of book signing events. He has also appeared on 'live' television in the UK publicising that first novel of his. He continues to write novels, poetry and the occasional quote; this one is taken from the beginning of Once I Was A Soldier There is no morality to be found in evil. But to recognise that which is truly evil one must forget the rules of morality.

    Wow! It brought such sadness up for me. I have a dream and a love in my life. Sometimes I wait for them to collapse because I don’t feel I desire such goodness, However, I am building new neural pathways and believing I do deserve this beautiful love and the pursuit of my dreams, It brings me such vitality in the mist of my pain from PTSD.

    I too was diagnosed with PTSD and as a consequence lost almost four years paid employment, but its beatable if you believe that you’re worth fighting for. Quote….. “Your battery may be flat but its chargeable.”
