lunatique

| volatile (gender neutral adjective) | /lynatik/

I rode the backs of giants. Appalachia,
take me home.
The steep ascent
and
     swift
          decline, a darkness
so profound.

How I
miss the days
I
ricocheted
from    ashes
       the
into
     flames.

If this is what
well-being is,
I’d rather
perish
in the blaze.

About Gabriella

I'm a twenty-something insomniac with a caffeine addiction and chronic wanderlust. I recently graduated with my M.A. in French, and I've spent the past two years living and working as an English teacher in France. I now work as an English professor at a university in Lille, where my students are learning to never omit the Oxford comma.
