Ariane Lauren considers herself a Northern Southerner, being raised in Connecticut as a child and living in North Carolina since she was a teenager. Many believe her to be mischievous due to her secretive nature, and they might be right.
Her work has been published in Moon Cola and forthcoming in Boats Against the Current, Levatio, Amphora, OrangePeel Literary, and more.
Young dreamers holler
Fearing the possibility
Stars burst without wails
Amongst these blackened depths come
Galaxies birthed from tear falls
