Spread A Wing

search
If there be treachery of love on tongues that mouth
The lies that damn our sacred vows,
Then burning death awaits its call
On devil’s wings and those that crawl.
 
Death too sweet for an arrow strike.
That taste of death before comes the smell of afterlife.
The condemnation as a curse
On those who use lies to coerce.
 
Speak of love, say loud the wise
Of truth, that denounce all the lies
Of a love that passed and disappeared,
Within innocent eyes filled only with tears.
 
Waste, what of it? Do we care?
Enough to the throw compassion bare.
Strip your heart, expose the flesh!
Show it quietly to those who rest.
 
Those who waited for the crashing sound
As truth was buried in sandy ground
Now hide those ears so once deceived
By the lies you all so once believed.
 
Throw wide the eyes, free the dove.
Let flourish only the true words of love.

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.
