The morning after last night

“Do you remember what happened?”
she timidly asked
the morning after last night
“Not quite.”
he casually replied
and overnight
beauty turned to beast
as eternity made peace
with a hushed one night
lust, it stayed back
naked, caught in the light
whilst love walked away
(un)aware, out of sight.
