Nineteen

Do you remember when you were nineteen,

and you were pulled,

led,

cajoled –

you cannot remember which,

into an alleyway

you failed to recognise.

§

You said, ‘I will be your Venus’,

because of the drugs they had given you..

Envy died.

You only envied the girl

you had been before..

when you were nineteen.

This is  poem about an attempt at rape which I managed to escape unharmed.
