So many times you have abandoned me,
ignited the flame of my love
only to snuff it out.
Why do I keep letting you in, I wonder?
Is it because I enjoy the pain?
Or is it the fact that
I’m more terrified of being lonely
than I am of being broken?
Batia is a writer of many things, poetry being her favourite. Her themes delve into the messiness of the human condition which is reflected through her unstructured but rhythmic style.
