Adams Morgan

The white flag waves
And calls me to surrender
To Kerouac and Fitzgerald
Valentine kisses and failure

A raspy voice warmed frosty days
With strong arms and masculine mystique
Heaven and Hell
In Adams Morgan

Connect – vanish – reconnect
Left haunts so deep
Strong hands pierced the crowded space
And melted the frozen night

The white flag waves
And calls me to surrender
While Kerouac tells me that
“Men have loved women without telling them”

Autumn greets winter
And winter breeds surrender
What if I had realized that
“Men have loved women without telling them”

  • Chilling, like the end of a cold day.

    I like the image of the white flag!

    Surrender is a good thing. Few people can surrender in a relationship. When one does not surrender to the other, true, deep and lasting connections of the heart are never made.

    Just remembered like a warm pot of
    of tea.
