Please see whether this helps:

\usepackage{fancyvrb}

\begin{Verbatim}[commandchars=\|]
TEXT BEFORE
LINE TO POINT TO|index[KEY]
TEXT AFTER
\end{Verbatim}

Note that here the default escape character \ is changed to | and the
default argument delimiters  { and } are changed to [ and ] using
"commandchars". You can use any other characters (including the default
ones) for these as long as they don't appear in the verbatim text.
