Explorer

You’re like an explorer; you discover lands that pre-existed.

I had an entire history before you, but none of that matters.

You take it all as your own discovery, as if I’d be nothing without you.

You conquered parts of me that weren’t even yours for the taking and you even dared to rename parts of myself in a language I didn’t speak.

You made me an outsider in my own body.
