Sheer Terror

 

 

It’s the quiet that I fear.

It’s in the dark I find peace

It’s only the terror that I hear.

The nightmare has no release.

It’s the silence that I hate.

It’s to the shadows I run.

It’s a fear that doesn’t abate.

It’s a chain that can’t be undone.

To a crevice, I cling

With no footholds in sight.

Over an abyss, I must swing

Limbs tremble with fright.

There are no answers anymore

Only questions to face.

There’s only one thing I’m sure;

In death there is grace!

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.
