This Beautiful Slumber

Poem By L.W. Smith

Descending down the hill I see
The cities lights strategically
Placed about the road below
The warm embrace I’ve come to know

The year is new and fresh like rain
As all these thoughts revive again
Subdued from vows I swore to keep
That collect in puddles beneath my feet

Wake up…
Wake up…

My head is loud as logic cries
What truth could come from tender eyes?
Unknown as to why it all seems new
For some reason I taste autumn with you

Wake up…

The undertow has yet to take me
The morning sun could never wake me
I refuse to let this moment shake me

Never wake me
Never wake me

The Little Girl At The Art Museum

Clinging to her mothers hand
As quiet as she can be
A multicolored wonderland
“Mother, may we please? ”

I Am Awake

Segments of a million smiles
Set sail towards the northern star
Ascending through barren limbs
And onward to the heavens

Thoughts After Running Out Of Gas

There’s a certain eeriness before light
Birthed from the serenity of lonely hearts

She’s in her kitchen right now


Such a horrid thought appeared this eve
Whilst the lonesome raven perched in the tree
And his ghastly eyes burned hot upon me
I shiver and think “it cannot be”


Into the brisk of autumn night
While luggage spewed and hands clasped tight
Your eyes shown of fluorescent light
We ran to Hollywood
