It Takes Two To Love

Did your heart taste the tear

That fell from your face

As you parted with love

Leaving an empty space?

Did you stop to ask

And then wonder why,

The love you felt so easily

Drained away from your eye?

Were you alone

In a helpless place?

Memories of that love

Leaving no trace?

If two fall in love

Then both have lost.

When the love that was freely given

Takes a life as its cost!

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.

  1. This is so sad Danny, but yet it is beautiful.

  2. Danny Kemp says:

    I know what you mean, Onisha, but I think beauty can often be found in sadness. I’ve seen paintings that would qualify for both those sentiments.
