Worst Morning After

It started off a naughty night,
though haven seemed so near in sight,
our scarlet stream turned a mindless monster;
its wake was a worst morning after.

We stormed the streets, painting them red,
I reluctantly burnished soft bursts in bed;
twain thrust and tones and groaning and laughter...
its wake was a worst morning after.

the feelings dawned like dew and dried so fast
on me, the heat of pain struck like stormy blast;
Cherry asked me to drill down faster...
its wake was a worst morning after.

A mix of gin and sexual sin
welcomed weariness and woes within,
it tasted sweet but left me bitter...
Its wake was a worse morning after.

I was right after all, Karma is a blind judge,
Cherry was not the one who took me to the lodge.
I got it all wrong when the bitter got sweeter..
Its wake was a worse morning after.
