Her

 
Her smile was so intense it beggared belief.
It beckoned, it said. “Give me relief.
Take me from this place. Give me breath,
If I were to stay I face only death.
I need to be wanted. I need what you can give.
Give me love. Give me a reason to live.”
“I’ve given my body, but never my soul.
I’ve toyed with passion. I’ve fulfilled that role.
Many a man I have led astray.
I have given in to what is their way.
But now I need a reason, not a lie.
Give me love or else I’ll die.

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.
