Francesca Michelin - Vulcano

V, V, V,

V come vulcano
V as in volcano

e mille altre cose
and thousands of other things

come la volontà di camminare vicino al fuoco
like the will to walk near fire

e capire se è vero questo cuore che pulsa
and understand if this beating heart is real

se senti sul serio oppure è vanità
if you mean it for real or it’s just vanity

V come vulcano
V as in volcano

e mille altre cose
and thousands of other things

come il volume che si alza e contiene il mare
as in the rising volume that contains the sea

e capire se vale scottarsi davvero
and understanding if getting burnt is worth your while

o non fare sul serio (fare sul serio)
or not be serious about it (be serious about it)


corro di notte, lampioni, le stelle
running at night, street lights, the stars

c’è il bar dell’indiano
there’s the Indian’s bar

profuma di te
it smells like you

grido più forte, mi perdo nell’alba
I scream louder, I lose myself in the dawn

sei in tutte le cose
you’re in every thing

in tutte le cose esplode la vertigine che ho di te
the vertigo I have for you me explodes in every thing



V come vulcano
V as in volcano

e mille altre cose
and thousands other things

la paura di vagare per troppo tempo a vuoto
my fear of wandering in vain for too long

e capire se è vivo questo cuore che vibra
and understanding if this vibrating heart is alive
 
può viaggiare davvero (viaggiare davvero)
it can travel for real (travel for real)


corro di notte, lampioni, le stelle
running at night, street lights, the stars

c’è il bar dell’indiano
there’s the Indian’s bar

profuma di te
it smells like you

grido più forte, mi perdo nell’alba
I scream louder, I lose myself in the dawn

sei in tutte le cose
you’re in every thing

in tutte le cose esplode la vertigine che ho di te
the vertigo I have for you explodes in every thing



mi sposto, mi fermo
I move, I stop

il semaforo in centro è già spento da un’ora
the traffic light downtown has been off for an hour

tu starai dormendo
you must be sleeping

è bello sentire anche qui
it’s nice to feel it here too

la vertigine che ho di te
the vertigo I have for you



corro di notte, lampioni, le stelle
running at night, street lights, the stars

c’è il bar dell’indiano
the Indian’s bar

profuma di te
it smells like you

grido più forte, mi perdo nell’alba
I scream louder, I lose myself in the dawn

sei in tutte le cose
you’re in every thing

in tutte le cose esplode la vertigine che ho di te
the vertigo I have for you explodes in every thing

Frankie (Francesca) Charles from the Batgirl comics. I’d love to see her as a more well known character! She uses forearm crutches AND a wheelchair! Love it so much!

10 YA Books That Are So Worth Your Tears

YA books are the life of me. I don’t think I will ever be too old or too cool for YAs because I always need something I can relate to or even some place I can escape to when life is sucking and I need distractions for a bit.

I also love YA books because it makes me feel. My favorite thing about life are feelings. I’m a very emotional person and I want my deepest emotions to always be triggered. I get that from reading YAs. A lot of trivial things can make me cry, things I see or read on the TV, movies, and books. Sometimes I weep for two days straight after reading a really hard-hitting YA book because I’m a freaking marshmallow, and I like subjecting myself to anything that will make me feel human.

Anyhow, here are the ten Young Adult books that made huge, and I mean HUGE, impact to my principles, beliefs and behavior. These books may be sad but they all promise hope. Just when you think the world is just a big blob of desolation, you’ll find comfort in reading these make-believes and relating to fictional heroines.
