The metre and structure of this poem are identical to that of “The Rape of Lucrece”. The lines of this poem are the words of an abandoned woman who was seduced by her charming and ex-love. The title of the poem and the emotions depicted in the poem resonate with this fact. There is a great truth of human behaviour hidden towards the end of the poem, as the narrator expresses that she would fall for the false charm again!
