A Night

‘Tell me of love’ She beseeched of me

As the night rolled on endlessly.

Never stopping she made her demands,

As I complied to her passionate commands.

This way, that way! I begged for a rest.

Have a smoke, catch a breath.

‘Take your time’ enticingly I cried.

It was not the truth. I had lied.

I wanted away. I wanted space.

I had not asked for such erotic pace.

I ached, my body wore weak.

I was in desperate need of refreshing sleep.

But not here, not in this bed,

There lay love and it filled me with dread.

I upped and left and heard the screech.

As a cry of love sought out me to reach.

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.
