40 years later

Her name was Rena, I can't remember her last.
20 years after, She came back with a blast.
I thought she was a friend, and would never do me harm,
I was wrong. I was terribly wrong.
She came to my house, And asked me to go with her.
To visit her boyfriend, She didn't want to go alone.
I told her I didn't want to, She insisted I go.
We'll have some drinks, Is it a go?
I don't want to drink, But if you insist.
I'll go for the hell of it, But can't stay long.
We got to the apartment, She ran into his arms.
They kissed and got mushy, It felt awkward, and alone.
Suddenly, a knock at the door, Rena became nervous.
What's the problem I asked, She replied, It's my boyfriend.
Alarmed, I asked,  Then,Who is this guy?
She explained, "His cousin"
Baffled and confused, She asked me to be silent.
He walks in, And into his arms, she ran.
Let's have some drinks she say's.
I politely decline. She said, What's one drink?
And made me one. Uncomfortable,and shocked,
I took two sips. That's all it took, too work her tricks.
I woke sometime later, Naked in a bed.
One of them on top of me, It won't hurt, he said.
With what energy, I seemed to muster up,
I pushed him off, and got myself dressed.
I stumbled into the living room, And told her to take me home.
Not one word was spoken, I was speechless, devastated, broken.
How could she do this? Why did I go? 
Was this all my fault? I didn't know.
Tucked away like a tragedy, It stayed there for 20 years.
Then one day, in conversation, It came flooding back.
How could I have forgotten something so profound?
How could the memory of that night, be shut down.
Sometimes, I wish it would've, could've should've,
Stayed there forever.

    I started reading this as if you were a man... and it got twisted really quick. Then I re-checked your username and re-read it as if it were written from a woman's perspective and it still remained twisted. Rena is a cunt and she needs help. Thanks for sharing. Sorry for using the word "cunt." I know it's a bad word, but we aren't all angels.

    I think my boyfriend's sister was behind it all. Because soon after, It was said that he was shown pictures of me. I had no clue at the time what they were talking about. Had already suppressed the violation. Never knew why he broke up with me. But I truly hated his sister.
