When Unconscious

How do you know

What is really happening

When you’re unconscious?

How do you trust,

Really trust, those around you?

If you are left pregnant

And you hadn’t had sex,

Not with anyone

Or only with women.

The men around you

Said they could change you;

Make you want them.

Maybe they know you can’t run

When you fall over.

You also know that the man was unsatisfied

And that you woke up

On his side of the bed.

So how do you know

What could have happened

When you were unconscious?

How do you trust,

Really trust, those around you?

If you are left pregnant

And you hadn’t had sex,

Not with anyone

Or only with women.
