Defined Me

You defined me
you defined me when you
beat me
spoke ill of me
when you lied to me
You defined me
when you took my innocence
when you fucked me and
told me that you loved me
when you twisted my words
syllables jumping from your sharp tongue
trying to escape from an icy spirit
You defined me when
you told me I was ugly
just a little black girl with nothing to offer
the world
or you
You wrote on the walls of my heart
you wounded me
you cut me
Your words will forever echo in my mind
in my soul
in my presence
you hurt me
and that pain has defined me
