She had fingers that were slim, a mouth that was wide. With a smile that conjured life itself to come alive.

She had a neck that was long, shoulders that were small. Her voice was the song that a nightingale would call.

Hair as black as night in its shadowiest dark, her personality radiated as a firestorm would spark.

Eyes that were wide, the colour of green. The most beautiful face a man could have ever seen.

A body so divine that the Gods smiled on. Their light from Heaven on her continuously shone.

The poise of a Goddess, an elegance so supreme. Making the silence in which I was immersed, shout out in a scream.

Ah, but to know! Now that would be a prize. Is that all that stands before me, or is there a hidden surprise?

if time could stand still and in a dream we remain then nothing we know now would ever be the same.

Each day is lived one day at a time, but we live so many different days all inside our mind.

The mind is an energy set apart on its own. Time doesn’t exist there. Time has no home!

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.
